A particularly psychedelic Astronomy Picture of the Day : There is a road that connects the Northern to the Southern Cross but you have to be at the right place and time to see it. The road, as pictured above, is actually the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy; the right place, in this case, is dark Laguna Cejar in Salar de Atacama of Northern Chile ; and the right time was in early October, just after sunset. You can follow APOD on Twitter , too.
