The central bugle of our Milky way rises above the crescent spring of Dunhuang, a major stop on the ancient Silk Road through China. Known to the world as the First Spring in the Desert, the Crescent Spring is surrounded by sand dunes. Seen from afar, the Crescent Spring resembles a crescent moon. Jeff Dai
