Stories of Night

In Between Showers:  A Galaxy!

"Early in 2023 I set a goal to capture the Milky Way with my camera. I found out about the closest dark sky location to me and booked an astro pad at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve.  As a beginner, I didn't realize the reason for open vacancies of the pads was I booked on a Full Moon! I went anyway and captured gorgeous pictures of that Moon and rebooked a New Moon night. It was quite dark that night and, unfortunately, it was a stormy night. I was the only person there. In between showers I was determined to get a shot of that beautiful celestial body and this was the result!!"
