The wait is over and now night sky enthusiasts in the BVI, like myself, can enjoy the mystic, eerie, yet beautiful display of the Milky Way Galactic Core as it parades across the sky nightly. Under dark skies the arch of the iconic Core is visible to the naked eyes (it appears as an arched cloud that does not move).
The Core is rich with popular nebulas and star clusters, such as Lagoon Nebula, Trifid Nebula, Omega Nebula, Cat’s Paw Nebula, Eagle Nebula… and the list goes on. During this season, which will last until around November, I will attempt to capture much of these targets.
This is a capture the Core (the dragon) as it tried to sneak over my hill early in the morning on 9th April, 2021.
