The bright band of the Milky Way and the galaxy's jewels appear high in the south to become the main attraction for the amateur astronomers. The image was taken during the 2014 Dazhou star party over Mount Batai in China. Stargazers around the south-west China come together to enjoy the talks, night time observing and astronomical photography during this summer weekend.
