It’s not hard to see the Milky way galaxy, if you go a little higher and far away from the city lights. Pictured above the last view of the summer Milky Way appears dazzling over the Ganden Monastery, Tibet, China. The three bright stars of the Summer Triangle (Vega, Altair, and Deneb) are on the upper middle. On the lower are constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius, towards the bright galactic center. All the scene above can be presented only 30 KM away from Lhasa.
