The milky way over a cross right outside San Pedro de Atacama

Far away from considerable light pollution, the Atacama Desert is known for its outstanding star gazing capability. In this picture, you can see the milky way and a cross which is just outside of San Pedro de Atacama. The lights on the horizon are from the city of Calama, Chile.
