Every day NASA posts a new astronomy-related picture to their site. I am going to bring them to you in case you forget.
Today’s image is titled Galaxy Cove Vista
Explanation: To see a vista like this takes patience, hiking, and a camera. Patience was needed in searching out just the right place and waiting for just the right time. A short hike was needed to reach thisrugged perch above a secluded cove in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in California, USA. And a camera was needed for the long exposure required to bring out the faint light from stars and nebula in the background Milky Way galaxy. Moonlight and a brief artificial flash illuminated the hidden beach and inlet behind nearby trees in the above composite image taken about two weeks ago. Usually obscuredMcWay Falls is visible just below the image center, while the Pacific Ocean is in view to its right.
