The Milky Way Sets


Under dark skies the setting of the Milky Way can be a dramatic sight. Stretching nearly parallel to the horizon, this rich, edge-on vista of our galaxy above the dusty Namibian desert stretches from bright, southern Centaurus (left) to Cepheus in the north (right). From early August, the digitally stitched, panoramic night skyscape captures the Milky Way's congeries of stars and rivers of cosmic dust, along with colors of nebulae not readily seen with the eye. Mars, Saturn, and Antares, visible even in more luminous night skies, form the the bright celestial triangle just touching the trees below the galaxy's central bulge. Of course, our own galaxy is not the only galaxy in the scene. Two other major members of our local group, the Andromeda Galaxy and the Triangulum Galaxy, lie near the right edge of the frame, beyond the arc of the setting Milky Way.

…When sweet and bitter
mingled together, no reed was plaited, no rushes muddied the water.
The gods were nameless, natureless, futureless.”

Medieval Scandinavians would bury salmon and herrings in holes in the ground to ferment. This would preserve the fish, for eating over the winter. Danes and Norwegians called it “laks,” to the Germans it was “lachs,” and you probably know the Yiddish name, “lox.” Of course today it is simply cured  in a fridge, with salt and a dash of sugar.
