Milky Way from home

I'm always pleased this time of year to still be able to see the Milky Way while outside in the evening. It's not bright, and does take a bit of effort to detect, but the Milky Way is still visible from my neighborhood. Sadly, i doubt this will last much longer. There is a new shopping center going in a quarter mile SW at the corner of East Palm Canyon and Farrell. There is also a new BMW car dealership being built about a half mile to the SE. A year from now if i can still see the Milky Way from home i'll be surprised... and very pleased!

 

You need to view the original size image to really see anything. And maybe turn up your monitor's brightness. But the Milky Way is visible and looks pretty much the same to the naked eye as it does in the photo.
