Beautiful pictures of the Magellanic Clouds.

The Magellanic Clouds—two gauzy patches of light (at far right)—share the sky above the Patagonian Andes with a streaking comet and the luminous band of the Milky Way.

A centuries-old supernova remnant, its rose-tinted shock wave blasting outward at more than 11 million miles an hour, hangs in the Large Magellanic Cloud like an iridescent holiday ornament.

Starry Sky, Washington - September 18, 2010

Photograph by Rhys Logan, (This photo and caption were submitted to My Shot.)

Driving home over the Waterville Plateau, a waxing sliver of a moon that fell early below the horizon made for a perfect moment of stargazing. What was even more eerie though, was that the wind had completely stopped also. Even from about 30 feet up a small embankment I could hear my shutter trip for a 25-second exposure. The lights on the horizon, shining from over 70 miles away, were the city lights of Ephrata and Moses Lake, Washington.

God Bless :smile:
