Galaxy

Note: I happened to come across some forgotten photos from this trip, so I thought it warranted a re-post.  –Editor

In one of my favorite memories from last summer, the sprawling Milky Way galaxy is viewed edge-on arching across the night sky over Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon.  The faint greenish hue seen here is airglow, the phenomenon of very weak light emission by Earth’s own planetary atmosphere.
