Stars in the Milky Way, 1 of 2

Newer Older

Starry night sky - stars in the Milky Way on a clear, bright night near McCall, Idaho. The magenta glow to the right comes from the lights in that little town, 5 miles away. NOTE: the streak going through the Milky Way, near the top of the photo is a man-made satellite (<< click for a close-up). Here's a meteor I captured the same night (with an explanation on how to tell the difference in your own photos).

See the awe-inspiring NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another!

My new ebook, Milky Way NightScapes, gives extensive details on how to enhance the landscape foreground. Three other chapters cover planning, scouting, forecasting star/landscape alignment, shooting and post processing.

    Light pollution adds a cool color tint (sadly). A different kind of aurora borealis! Loving your night shots of the Milky Way!
