February 28, 2017 - A 360 degree panorama of he winter sky and Milky Way at Dinosaur Provincial Park in southern Alberta, Canada, on a very clear night. The Milky Way stretches across the sky from south (bottom) to northwest (at top right). The zodiacal light stretches up from the horizon in the west at right, and can be traced faintly across the sky to the east (at left) where there is a dim glow of Gegenschein visible. The view is looking south and in this scene the galactic anti-centre is near the centre of the image. We are looking toward the outer edge of the Galaxy, to the outer spiral arms opposite the galactic centre in Sagittarus, visible in summer. Orion is at bottom centre, almost due south. North is at top.
