Cho Gyeong-Chui Observatory is located on Gwangdeoksan Mountain in South Korea. It’s named after a famous South Korean astronomer, who interpreted the Apollo 11 moon landing on the American Forces Korean Network. While interpreting, he got so over excited that he fell out of his chair!

We don’t have further information about the photographer or the technical details of the image, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying this incredible sight!
