Summer milkyway

A faint look of the summer milky way over one of the domes in the observatory.

The glow in the lower left washing up the nightsky is light pollution from Houston.


The George Observatory is located in the Brazos Bend State Park about an hour south of Houston, TX.

The observatory is a satellite facility of the Houston Museum of Natural Science and has 3 domed telescopes which are publicly accessible.

For more information on the observatory check their web site at:
