Gareth making his way along Crib Goch under a star filled sky. The cone of light you can see shooting up from Garnedd Ugain is something called zodiacal light which is caused by sunlight reflecting off interplanetary dust in our solar system. (Pic from January this year)

Hello everyone! I'm @adamdavidrivera and it is a sincere honor to be on takeover here @universetoday
I recently moved to Washington State and I have been living out of my car for the better half of 2 months. I have to say, it is not as bad as it sounds when you find that your home is where your heart is.
I knew I wanted an excellent star trail composition of Mt. Rainier so I took a random road as deep as I could into the national park and I ended up at this location where I could see a monstrosity faintly lit by pale moon light.
I pulled over, reached for my cam, setup the composition and fired away. For over an hour I sat in the snow off the side of the road thinking how one day my love for astrophotography would be recognized and a true love of space would be invigorated in new minds.
If you want to know more about my workflow or are learning to shoot the night sky yourself, DM me and I will be happy to assist you. Take care.

These are the clouds of the Rho Ophiuci molecular complex, captured from some of the darkest skies in the US. The blue nebula to the left of the more commonly imaged nebula is called the blue horsehead nebula, although I really don’t see a horse here at all. This general area of the sky is really really diverse, so many astrophotographers consider it the best thing to take pictures of. Anyways hope y’all are having a nice Father’s Day, and let me know what you think :) ps thx @blazing_heavens for setting up my camera so I could go to sleep earlier
