Astronomer's Paradise

It's cold, it's dry, the air is thin. The nearest city is miles away across a barren landscape of boulder-strewn hills. At night, the only lights to guide you are the stars in the sky. Astronomers, welcome to paradise

I could pitch my tent over there, next to that rock. No, the other one. And happily live out my days tripping my face off watching the sky. Nice.

The real astronomer's paradise is North Korea. At night they turn off lights in entire country. Just google "North Korea at night" on google images.

Does it really look like that?
If it does, it is sad that it looks like fake / photoshopped to me :(

Amazing view. Looks like something out of a science fiction flick.

#6: It looks like they used long exposure time. You wouldn't be able to see all the pretty colors with naked eye, but the images are by no means photoshopped. They just show a little more than our limited night vision can.
