Wild Weds. 37/52 The Night was Still and Full of Stars

Over Labor Day week-end myself and several friends were back in the Eastern Sierras. I love it over there. This time we ventured further south.

We spent our evenings photographing the stars.  This image I made on our last night there.

Windmill Eastern Sierras

I caught a shooting star above Mars, and Saturn is the bright star in the center of the Milky Way’s Dark lane about even with the top horizontal rung on the windmill.  I didn’t know I had managed to catch the shooting star in my frame until I got home and uploaded my images.

The light pollution on the horizon is coming from the town of Bishop I believe.

I hope you’re all having a great week! Yeah, halfway to the week-end!

  1. This is a beautiful capture, Deborah! ​I love the night sky. I grew up in a place dark enough to see millions of stars and gaze upon the Milky Way. As a child, I dreamed of being an astronomer and was forever asking for a telescope. This photo makes me long to visit a place like that again. 🙂

  2. It took me a while to locate the shooting star, but I eventually did. Gorgeous, gorgeous photo, Deborah!! I’m just in awe of the Milky Way and combined with a windmill, it looks just amazing!

  3. Gorgeous picture! I’m glad you pointed out the shooting star, I never would have noticed it. I don’t realize how few stars we can see in our night sky where we live until I see a sky in an area with less light pollution. Such a loss.

  4. Very nice picture. Interesting that you take up the issue of light pollution. Hope one day it will become a matter of concern for the wider public.

A penny for your thoughts...
