Three Galaxies over New Zealand
A radio dish that broadcasts galaxies? No, but they can detect them, according to NASA. In this image, taken two weeks ago, we can see the photogenic superposition of a night sky over New Zealand.
As pictured above, the central part of our Milky Way Galaxy is seen rising to the east on the image left and arching high overhead. Beneath the Galactic arc and just above the horizon are the two brightest satellite galaxies of our Milky Way, with the Small Magellanic Cloud to the left and the Large Magellanic Cloud on the right. The radio dish is the Warkworth Satellite Station located just north of Auckland.
