Barton Creek Under the Milky Way 1

Barton Creek

High over the Barton Creek Greenbelt, the Milky Way scrolls across the night sky. Unfortunately we can’t actually see the night sky in all its glory from this vantage point - too much light pollution from downtown Austin (only 5 miles away) drowns out the shining stars. But if you could see it, this view looking south would be exactly what you’d see in July and August a little after midnight. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
