Zion Nightscape

Region: Americas

Site: Zion National Park - USA

Date: June 2009

In a partly cloudy night of Zion National Park in Utah, the summer Milky Way rises like an arc over the eastern horizon. The Zion Canyon (pictured above) is 24 km long and marks the junction of the Colorado Plateau and Mojave Desert regions. As noted by the photographer "Zion means the Promised Land and it certainly holds promise to all that venture there. The image is taken on the edge of the City of Springdale just at the entrance to Zion national park. This city has done a marvelous job of keeping their night skies dark. It is these faint city lights that are lighting up the beautiful landscape here." Wally Pacholka, Astropics.com
