Also in the Outback:

Milky WayAnother meteor crater, which I found out about from this article about a photographer who took this photo of the Milky Way from inside it.

From the Slate article: "He was in the Northern Territory at Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve. At that location, more than 4,000 years ago, an iron asteroid slammed down into the desert."

Read more to find out more about this crater. I think we should  go there on our next trip to the NT.

Can I get an Amen?

Phil Plait, author of the "Bad Astronomy" blog, notes at the end of the article: "Babak’s photos can be seen on The World At Night website; this is a group dedicated to creating photos or videos of night sky attractions with famous landmarks in the foreground. He also has his own site, Dream View. Seriously, check out his nebulae pictures. Fantastic!"
