At this time of year, the Milky Way stands straight up from the south-southwest horizon right after complete dark if you're in the world's mid-northern latitudes. Robert Sälg took this shot from Vorumaa, Estonia, latitude 58°, rather far north — which is why the Sagittarius star clouds are almost hidden by the crowd, and why the bluer Cygnus Star Cloud isn't as high as it "should" be.
