Astrophoto from Brooklyn New York, NYC and astrophotography tourism. I like astronomy, astrophotography and nightscape, starscape photography. I like to record the finest details of the Moon, planets, the Sun, the Milky Way and beauty of the night sky.

Not so much were change on Galapagos Islands during last 3 millions years!
Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is one of the symbol of the Southern Sky (especially for me northern-biased star gazer). First time I saw Large Magellanic Cloud in Peru, couple of years ago, but it was too close to horizon. Finally, I got it! This small white cloud on the right is not regular cloud, it is companion of our Milky Way, just 1/100 mass of our Galaxy. The position of the LMC can be recognized using Southern Cross. On Galapagos fantastic starry night sky, the LMC view was amazing!
