Timelapse: The Milky Way over the Temple of Poseidon (excerpt)

The Milky Way rises over the Temple of Poseidon, at Cape Sounio, 65km southeast of Athens, Greece, at the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula.

Built to honour the ancient sea god, the temple dates back to 444-440 BC. It was the symbol of Athenian power and an important religious and maritime icon of ancient times. According to the legend, Cape Sounio is the spot where Aegeus, king of Athens, leapt to his death off the cliff, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea.
