The Milkway sets
The galactic core (the thickest and brightest part of our galaxy) sets before the sun does from this latitude at this time of year. I was however able to capture a still somewhat dense part of our galaxies spiral arms in this photo. It’s tricky with all of the light pollution around. I thought this location would be better than it was.over the rice fields of rural Japan.
The big, bright “star” to the left of center is the planet Jupiter.
