216/365 Milky Way

Posted this a few days ago on my Facebook blog here but I wanted to show it here as well.  This is the Milky Way looking south west across the Gulf of Nicoya in Costa Rica.  I knew the stars would be clear here but it was magnificent.  It is so good for observing astronomical objects because across the Gulf of Nicoya is a mountainous areas with trees and hardly any civilisation apart the harbour towns, so minimal light pollution, and then behind that there is absolutely nothing but ocean until you reach Australia!
