  Milky Way's Centre above Seoul


By  Galaxy W. Zee

According to a recent study which is published Science, astronomers confirmed the humanity lost their starry night sky due to strong light pollution. Also, Seoul, the capital city of S. Korea recorded top rank.

Thus, is it not allowed to see and 'feel' stars from modern metropolitan like Seoul, Tokyo and NewYork? Nope.

The most important thing to feel the universe is not air quality ,weather, city light and moon phase, but your will to up your head above the horizon.

In this picture taken last week, the noticeable Sagittarius and Milky Way's center extend above the N. Seoul Tower on Nam Mt. Park at Seoul City. Faint summer stars are mingled with bright city light.

Urban Explorers, Up your head, that is enough.
