Night Sky Above the Salt Flats

Back in September, we featured a panorama of the salt flats in Utah’s West Desert.  The panorama below was created in exactly the same spot, but an hour later:

 

 

Sometimes one hour can make all the difference!  The green glow along the horizon is not from any aurora (which I still have never seen!), but from distant city lights.  From the opening view, if one rotates  left to the orange glow on the horizon and then looks up a ways, the Andromeda Galaxy can be seen as a very small horizontal smudge below the Milky Way.

Thank You!
