Shired Island, Florida - Night Sky

Night Skies - Long Exposure - Best Viewed in "light box" - click on photo.

 

Western sky. Orion's Belt top center.

 

We came here because we were told that Shired Island has the darkest accessible skies east of the Mississippi. We weren't disappointed. Saw the Milky Way and the night skies in all their glory. Also got to witness a gorgeous sunset from the beach.
