Milky Way Galaxy

This is a picture of our Milky Way galaxy. I took this picture in Hateruma island located the southern-most inhabited in Japan. This island has very dark night sky. So I decited to visit there for taking picture of Milky Way in two thousand five. It takes almost seven hours to get there from my home, by the way.
