When The Earth Reached Its Arms to the Heavens

When The Earth Reached Its Arms To the Heavens (2507)

~~~~~

Listening to the cosmos seems easier to imagine with the Milky Way arching overhead. Owens Valley Radio Observatory, run by Cal Tech since 1958, and located in the beautiful Owens Valley near Big Pine and Bishop, CA. I illuminated the dish with a handheld ProtoMachines LED flashlight during the exposure. The sky was murky with the Georges Fire near Mt. Whitney, which was caused by lightning, so I had to be patient, waiting for the skies to periodically clear. Another challenge was that this enormous radio telescope kept moving during exposures! Thank you to the people at Cal Tech for giving me the opportunity to photograph here!
