Barton Creek Under the Milky Way 1
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.
