"The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean... Recently, we've managed to wade a little way out, and the water seems inviting." - Carl Sagan
Grand Teton starry night
A starry night at the foot of Grand Teton mountains (Grand Teton National Park), Wyoming, United States. The Grand Tetons are a relatively isolated set of high peaks that are part of the Rocky Mountains. Our Galactic Plane appears to crash into the Tetons.
