Milky Way

from last night, north of Bruce, Wisconsin
The faint color on the horizon is called "airglow" (Airglow (also called nightglow) is a faint emission of light by a planetary atmosphere. In the case of Earth's atmosphere, this optical phenomenon causes the night sky never to be completely dark, even after the effects of starlight and diffused sunlight from the far side are removed.)

Nikon D810
25s f/2.8 at 14.0mm iso3200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large auto

A fabulous image! Seeing this, you can understand why people got the idea that Heaven was up in the sky!
