Like a Prayer – November 2018

The winter Milky Way is arching over a chapel in the Swiss Alps, while dense fog is covering the lower parts of Switzerland and thus helps reducing light pollution.

The sky is dotted with red hydrogen emission nebulas, especially in the constellation Orion and our galactic neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy, is dominating the sky in the upper right of the image.

In the center, just below the Pleiades, Gegenschein, sunlight that is backscattered on interstellar dust is brightening the night sky.
