“I’m a 17 year old student who has a strong passion for aviation and photography as a whole. I took this photo of the Milky Way Galaxy with my Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra at my closest friend’s holiday house in Coal Point, NSW, Australia. Why did I take it? The suburb I live in has too much light pollution to achieve the level of detail as seen in the photo.”
