USNO Dome Caressed by Moonlight

From the photographer: "After an evening of dark sky observing in the US Naval Observatory parking lot in Flagstaff, AZ, the waning gibbous moon rose and put a brilliant end to our evening. On the drive out of the parking lot, I passed the main observatory dome as it was bathed in the cool rising moonlight. It was incredibly serene and beautiful. So I grabbed a parting shot before heading home. Pegasus, Lacerta, Cygnus and brighter patches of the Milky Way can be seen setting over the dome and snowy landscape." - Jeremy Perez
