I was feeling like we needed some visual to remind us of the wonder of the night sky, the universe and why we should look up and wonder.
This stunning photo was sent to me by a young man from Thunder Bay, David Valente, who is an enthusiastic member of Northern Photography with a strong interest in astral photography. He tells me that he and his friends are known to cross the border at all hours of the night ( and morning ) to get some absolutely dazzling views of the night sky .This particular shot was taken just the other side of the Canada/USA border in our neighbouring American state of Minnesota.
Thanks, Dave, for your permission to use the shot. And for the beauty and wonder. And for getting up and making the trek in the middle of the night to capture it. 🙂
Is it possible to look up at this sky and not wonder what else it out there?
