Pillars of Stars and Colors

By: Yuri Beletsky


Region: Americas

Site: Atacama Desert - Chile


From the photographer: "What you see here is an all sky (almost 360 deg) panorama taken in Atacama Desert. The captured colors are truly wonderful and this is not Aurora. This is airglow. Indeed Amazing, and this time we witnessed two different kinds of airglow - the yellow/orange one (oxygen 6300A emission) and much rare red one (OH). The night sky is definitely not black and we have a proof here! Yuri Beletsky
