Sea Arch Stargazer "This wasn't a shot I had originally planned on before arriving, but as soon as I saw the way things were lining up, I knew it had potential to be awesome. I climbed around on the rocks until I found the right angle. I really loved how the core of the Milky Way lined up directly above the Arch."
Moon Meets Morning Star (Aug 24 2012) Image Credit & Copyright: Kwon, O Chul (TWAN) Explanation: Rising in the dark hours before dawn, wandering Venus now shines as the brilliant morning star. Its close conjunction with the Moon on August 13 was appreciated around planet Earth. But skygazers in eastern Asia were also treated to a lunar occultation, the waning crescent Moon passing directly in front of the bright planet in still dark skies. #astronomy
