From Oz: Carnival of Space #83
Be sure to check out this week's Carnival of Space - it's the Antipodean Edition, hosted by Ian Musgrave's Astroblog. Ian hails from Adelaide, Australia, and he provides startling photographic evidence of what it's like to live on the bottom of a world (Earth in this case). When I was in Australia in June/July 2006, I saw the southern sky for the first time, and on a visit to a very dark national park at Jervis Bay, the super-bright Milky Way over our heads was a dazzling sight. But it was amazing how quickly the upside down feeling passed.
