Incan Starlight

Ayapata, Inca Trail, Peru

A stunning light show along the Inca Trail, Peru, during a new moon. The sky is so dark and yet so bright on nights like this one, Peruvians have names for constellations that aren't connect-the-star-dots but instead are dark patches between the stars.  I was delighted to see parts of the night sky I had never seen before, especially the Southern Cross, a quartet of bright stars in a cross shape.  Look for it on the right side of the frame.
