Milky Way

Uploaded: August 04, 2016 | Entered: August 04, 2016 17:48:03


8/4/16, landscape. Went out for the aurora but it was pretty underwhelming- so turned toward south for the Milky Way. Orange glow is light pollution from Missoula, about 30-40 miles away as the crow flies.

Exif: Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 29/1 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
