Deep in space around 26,000 light years away lies a Supermassive Black Hole named Sagittarius A*. This Black Hole is 4 million times the mass of our sun and the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy and between it and us, massive clouds of dust and gas which you can see here above Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks. On Earth we lie half way down one of the spiral arms of our galaxy and get to see different parts of the Milky Way at different times of the year as we move through the solar system and space itself. Buttermere is a great place to spend some time capturing the stars above the beautiful landscape of the Lake District.
Here arching down the sky you can see the massive cloud of dust and gas at the centre of our galaxy and also billions of stars. The constellations of Scorpius, Sagittarius, Delphinus and many more (full starmap included with picture) also dominate the beautiful star filled skies of this panorama. To the left a slight hint of purple aurora adds more beautiful colour to the shot.
This is a panorama made up of 30 separate photographs allowing me to blow it up big and show so much detail of both skies and landscape
Strictly limited and only available framed or acrylic
Full starmap, description and certificate of authenticity included with each photograph
