Galactic Monsoon

The incredible photograph above was recently featured as the Earth Science Picture of the Day. It shows the Milky Way stretching across the desert sky and a distant monsoon thunderstorm on the horizon. It was captured just outside of Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah. The photo was taken on August 27, 2011. To learn more about the shot and settings, see here for the original post.
