This is a 75 image panorama of the Milky Way over a dry salt lake bed at Yenyening Lakes near Beverley in Western Australia. This was the last image I took this particular night as a bank of cloud moved into the area, which you can see quite clearly here. Very prominant green and orange airglow can be seen as well, along with the Magellanic Clouds just to the right of centre, near the horizon. The jigsaw-like patterns on the lake bed are pressure ridges which form when salt rises to the surface and starts crystalising. The lake continues to evaporate and as it dries it contracts and causes the salt to create pressure ridges
