Night sky and arch
Canyonlands National Park, Utah
Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park is a very popular site for sunrise. This image was made well before sunrise in deep twilight. The Milky Way galaxy parallels the arch and at lower left above the arch is the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), also elongated horizontally. Just above the Milky Way is the constellation Lyra. This is an 11 frame mosaic.
