Devil’s Monument Dipper Streak
Devil’s Tower National Monument : : Wyoming, USA
While traveling across the Northern United States, I decided to stop off and sleep at the campsite near Devil’s Tower National Monument – good thing I did! There was a full (or almost full) moon which lit the front side of the Tower, giving me enough exposure to get some detail out of the photo. The 7 stars that are prominently streaking across the sky are those of the Big Dipper constellation which were bright enough to be captured.
