Milky Way ever so faintly

Still hot on the trails of Milky Way from Kudat and Tg Simpang Mengayau, we decided to wander over to Tusan Cliff and see how dark the skies were over this side. With the moon almost quarter full up in the skies, it wasn't all too dark for a perfect shot of our galaxy.

Kudat city lights proved too bright for our Milky Way, this shot was made at the Kudat Municipal padang by evading the streetlights as best we can ... still too bright.

A small break in the skies revealed a spattering of bright stars at Tg Simpang Mengayau hidden by the evening clouds. The place was perfect for dark skies if only the nite wasn't so cloudy.
