Central band of our Milky Way Galaxy

NASA published this stunning photograph today featuring the road that connects the Northern Cross and Southern Cross – the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy.  Taken from Laguna Cejar in Northern Chile by Nicholas Buer, the photo was shot in October, just after sunset.  Included in the photo are the Moon, Venus (above/left of the Moon), Saturn, Mercury, the Large and the Small Magellanic Clouds satellite galaxies.  The orange glows on the horizon are the lights of nearby towns.
