I’ve been interested in astronomy and astro photography for a long time, but never could find the time and a clear sky. Light pollution was also a big problem because I lived in the suburbs of a major American city.
But, then I moved out here in rural Missouri, and now I can see more than I ever could back home. On the clearest nights, I can see some of the Milky Way with my eyes. The night sky is absolutely gorgeous, and looking at it helps me be happy and forget about my problems for a short time.
This photo was taken on July 18th, 2020 at my home in Perryville, MO, USA. I used my Canon 5D4, Tamron 24-70mm @ 24mm, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 4 seconds.
