While on the southern Earth’s hemisphere the people would have the longest nights, the summer comes on the northern half of our planet. In ten days will be the summer solstice. This season is totally exciting for everyone because of the visibility of the most beautiful part of the Milky Way with the center of it. Unfortunatelly this lovely part of our Galaxy is not well visible from the Czech Republic. And the brings even more “complication” – very short nights. Well, actually, there is no astronomical night a few days around the date, because the Sun is not lower than minus 16,5 degrees under the horizon. So if you want to catch the beauty of the Milky way in the more-less dark sky, you have to be under the sky around local midnight. And this is a luck I had on the night 10/11 June 2015, when I was moving from the Slovak city Puchov via the border to the Czech Republic and visited lovely mountain location of the Beskids. Just a few meters from Kohutka ski-areal there was a parking lot and I only stood up from the car to take a glimpse up in the Universe. The bright stars in the Milky way are well-known formation called the Summer triangle (Vega-Altair-Deneb) and the green hue is caused by the airglow. Normally it is not that easy to capture that beautiful sky as seen on the picture, but the Beskids mountains are a bit more away from light polluted areas of the Cetral Europe. I had only dozens minutes before the Moon rised up and also until the sky was still dark enought. Shotly: What a lovely view!
