Post some pics of star trails, mikyway and other celestial beauty.


Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

Jammer vir die hijack ... as julle ouens ooit eendag wil, wat van 'n sterreaand by die taalmonument, Paarl?  (Okey, die winter is nie so "hot" idee nie)  Jy piekniek, kry 'n sterrepraaitjie en kan na die tyd bietjie deur teleskope loer ....

Go to Van Wyksdorp in the Little Karoo if you want to enjoy the stars and Milkyway. There is a nice camping area whwere you can lay on the grass and enjoy a evening full of stars.  :mwink:
Gooi los!!!

Here's a link to the biggest true-color pics of the milkyway.

You can switch on the constellation labels, etc. and click the objects to get to it's wikipedia page.
