Milky Way

Here are a couple of images shot on a recent trip to Crete. I've never seen stars like it, an awesome sight.

“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” 
Carl Sagan.
