ALMA Milky Way This alluring all-skyscape was taken 5,100 meters above sea level, from the Chajnantor Plateau in the Chilean Andes. Viewed through the site’s rarefied atmosphere at about 50% sea level pressure, the gorgeous Milky Way stretches through the scene. Its cosmic rifts of dust, stars, and nebulae are joined by Venus, a brilliant morning star immersed in a strong band of predawn Zodiacal light. Still not completely dark even at this high altitude, the night sky’s greenish c...

February 15, 2013 That is a dirty wing!

Thailand’s @nokairlines came down to #sgairshow for a whistle stop visit on behalf of #Bombardier to showcase ‘Nok Cappu’, one of the six #Q400.

This is suitable on short flights, and on destinations where demand is too low for their Boeing 737-800s. #singaporeairshow #spottedatsgairshow #avgeek #aviation #airplane #aerosexual #aeroplane #megaplane #planeporn #instaplane #instagramaviation #instaaviation #igavi...

Sculpting La Silla’s skies A rare patch of wispy white clouds streak across the sky over ESO’s La Silla Observatory in this photograph, taken on 11 June 2012 by astronomer Alan Fitzsimmons.
