This southern view of the Milky Way just took my breath away. Well, and no wonder – this image was taken by an award winning photographer Babak Tafreshi under the superior Chilean skies near the ALMA observatory.

2014 is rich in stargazing events and I put together a list to have a brief view of them. These are just some of the highlights to watch out for in the new year, so I recommend checking out the full list with more details. Also the full list is helpful because some of the events could be seen both in north and southern hemisphere, some only in one. Here is the high-res version of the image. 

April 8 – best view of Mars!
