Gorgeous Photo of the Milky Way in the Night Sky Over Yellowstone National Park’s Silex Spring

Milky Way Over Yellowstone National Park

This stunning image shows the central band of our Milky Way galaxy in the night sky over Silex Spring in Yellowstone National Park. The hot spring is 10 meters across, and colored by bacteria that thrive in its magma-heated water. The photograph is actually a 16-image panorama taken by astrophotographer Dave Lane.
