Things you don't see at home every day

The Milky Way in all its glory

The last time I saw the Milky Way was in the Maldives, but even then there was some ambient light that stole away the show. On our first night in Ayers Rock resort (Yulara), the Milky Way looked just so heavenly, so bright, so plentiful, that we would have watched it all night. Well, except there were cars on the road every so often, and I didn't want to walk up to a look-out point (I can control my fear of poisonous snakes during the day, when I can see them, but I don't think you'd ever get me to walk in the desert at night, particularly on a warm night, when they might still be out and about!).
