From Yuri about this image:

Starry night over Cordillera Paine.

In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. And at nightfall, it becomes even more beautiful. But the moment is fleeting. Arch of the Milky Way will soon disappear under the horizon. The moon is behind the rocks. And the moonlight illuminates the tops of the mountains on the left and right sides of the image. Each mountain has its own name. Three towers in the center: Southern, Central and Northern. The top in the right side is called the Nest of the Condor(reflected in the waters of the lagoon), and the mountain on the left is called Grandson of the Admiral. The Large Magellanic Cloud is located above it. Interestingly that I couldn’t find definitive data about the height of these mountains. In the Spanish Wikipedia and on the official Chilean maps the height of the mountains is about 2800 meters, at the same time, the English Wikipedia and the Google Earth map gives a value of 2,400 meters. Latest value personally to me seem more likely. But why do they have such confusion with the heights I did not understand.

As always I share with you real images, it’s not composite, it is a real place and sky, it exists in reality.

Happy New Year!
