All things weird and wonderful, 33

14 08 2013

I’ve mentioned the wonderful weirdness at Yellowstone before; this is more wonder-ful than weird:

A volcanic planet, our tiny home in the galaxy. The Milky Way and bright star Antares at the heart of Scorpion appear above hot springs in the Yellowstone National Park, United States. Caption and photo: Babak Tafreshi,

This image (which you can see in full glory here) is a part of The World At Night series, “an international effort to present stunning nightscape photos and time-lapse videos of the world’s landmarks against celestial attractions.”

Beautiful, beautiful photos; beautiful, beautiful world.
