The Milky Way

Image Credit: Michael Goh

Taken in Nambung National Park in Western Australia, a crescent moon appears to balance on one of the Pinnacles- an unusual, human-sized rock made of limestone. The glow surrounding the Moon is due to zodiacal light, when sunlight reflects off dust particles found between planets in the solar system. The central part of the Milky Way arches over the horizon, completing this wonderfully unique composition.
