It is Astrophoto Friday. Today instead of a photo taken with one of the Palomar telescopes, it is time to see the sky from Palomar.
The Milky Way Galaxy over the Hale Telescope as captured by Wally Pacholka of AstroPics.com.
Wally recorded this image just over a week ago on the night of Thursday June 10, 2010. His photo serves as a reminder that the battle between astronomy and light pollution has not yet been lost and that the skies over Palomar are still beautiful and worth fighting for.
