The Milky Way rising over Lost Lake in the Uinta Mountains of Utah:
I have 2 pairs of waders, but have never fished a day in my life!! I use them to stand around in lakes and streams hoping for the right light or some sort of happy accident to make a memorable image. I hope you enjoy this one!
Have a Great Day,
Traveling west from the town of Delta, Utah one will find……. well, not much, which makes it perfect for a clear view of the night sky:
This view is from the (almost) dry lake bed of Sevier Lake, one of those spots that can be rather eerie at night.
The Silver Island Mountains, just north of the Bonneville Salt Flats, at night (well, almost night):
The opening view of this panorama features a bright band of light which extends up and intersects the Milky Way. This is the Zodiacal Light, which is not the porch light of a palm reader, but illuminated dust and debris in our solar system which is concentrated along the same plane as the planets orbiting our sun. A link below the panorama tells more about this phenomenon.
Thanks For Viewing!
In winter there is a lot of, well…… dark. In the sparsely populated western regions of Utah this dark is well preserved:
This panorama contains several interesting sky features which are detailed in the text beneath the panorama. I hope you enjoy it.
