Summer Milky Way

The Summer Milky Way rises over the distant cities and towns of Peloponnese as beams of light reach into the night sky at the Gulf of Corinth in West Greece. Interestingly enough, the middle beam seems to be pointing out locations in the Galactic Center of the Milky Way between the Lagoon Nebula and the Ptolemy Cluster.
