The Moonlight has illuminated The Grand Canyon, a World Heritage Site in northern Arizona, USA. It is the longest canyon on the Earth, a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River steadily in about 17 million year time span. The canyon is 446 km long, ranges in width from about 6 to 29 km and attains a depth of more than 1.6 km (a mile). Notable in the sky above left side of the canyon are stars of Cassiopeia in the Autumn Milky Way. Wally Pacholka/Astropics.com.
