Living in the Baltimore/Washington area doesn’t afford much of a visual view of the night sky. The brightest stars, planets, and the moon are the only things visible. The Milky Way? Not a chance. In spite of that, modern CMOS cameras and digital processing make it possible to cut through the soupy skies and find photons that have spent thousands or millions of years traveling through space and time to reach this particular backyard. This site serves to share some of those images.
