Foto Dono's 2021 Milky Way Season - Part 7 - Looking for the Milky Way - October and November

Updated: Jan 6

In October and November, the Milky Way is disappearing from view in the Northern Hemisphere. Our location along the globe's latitude will affect our view of the Milky Way unless you live aboard the International Space Station. (sigh) Instead, I will have to be content with living on the bottom of a gravity well spinning around a small yellow orb cartwheeling its way through the galaxy.


OCTOBER:

October presents many early evenings of photographing the Core. Depending on the weather, I usually end October with an evening at a cemetery. Coincidently enough, October 31st, Halloween, is a perfect time for a photo excursion.
