APOD: The Waterfall and the World at Night (2013 May 17) Image Credit & Copyright: Stéphane Vetter (Nuits sacrées) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130517.html Explanation: Above this boreal landscape, the arc of the Milky Way and shimmering aurorae flow through the night. Like an echo, below them lies Iceland's spectacular Godafoss, the Waterfall of the Gods. Shining just below the Milky Way, bright Jupiter is included in the panoramic nightscape recorded on March 9. Faint and diffuse, the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) appears immersed in the auroral glow. The digital stitch of four frames is a first place winner in the 2013 International Earth and Sky Photo Contest on Dark Skies Importance organized by The World at Night. An evocative record of the beauty of planet Earth's night sky, all the contest's winning entries are featured in this video. http://www.nuitsacrees.fr/ http://twanight.org/contest http://vimeo.com/41781867 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130517 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0517
