Milky Way rising by Malcolm Park
This time-lapse sequence was captured overnight from dusk to dawn on May 6/7 2014 in Prince Edward County, near Bloomfield Ontario, from the North Shore of Lake Ontario.
Looking south, the light domes of Syracuse and Rochester NY glow on the horizon.
The 1st quarter moon illuminates the scene to start, and at center stage is Mars, with Spica shining below left in the constellation Virgo.
Saturn glides on-stage in the constellation Libra.
And finally, as the moon sets, Antares and Scorpius come into view and we see the heart of the Milky Way revealed as it rises with Sagittarius and Aquila the Eagle and Altair.
