A 360 degree panorama of the summer night sky in the valley of Eselsburg, Swabian Alb. The Milky Way arches over rocks with the famous "Steinerne Jungfrauen", which means "Stony Virgins". Strong light pollution of nearby cities Herbrechtingen and Heidenheim can be seen on the left hand side (north). On the right hand side (south) lies the city of Ulm.
