Under the Canopy of Stars

By: Wally Pacholka


Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Haleakala National Park - USA

Date: September 2008

As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day "There are no words to describe this magic night under the canopy of stars and extreme brilliance of the Milky Way arching across the sky". Notes by the photographer who made this mosaic image under the light of the crescent Moon from near the top of Haleakala Crater, a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui.
