The Color of Night

This image is an 8 shot panorama featuring the full arc of our Milky Way galaxy over the sandstone fins that encompass the Sand Dune Arch area in Arches National Park, Utah. The foreground was statically lit with an LED panel.

The green and magenta hues in the sky are airglow, a naturally occurring optical phenomenon that the human eye can't see but the camera captures.
