The Clouds of Magellan from @aman_chokshi ❤
From the dark skies of the Southern hemisphere, our two closest galactic neighbours can be seen. The large and small magellanic clouds are surprisingly massive in the sky, and can often be confused with actual clouds ;)
Here, the magellanic clouds can be seen through an intense layer of green airglow.
For the photographers out there, this is a panorama with a 24mm lens, giving you some sense of how gigantic the galaxies are.
