In a starry night of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, United States, the spectacular view of our home galaxy, the Milky Way, appears over a trekking trail known as the Queen's Garden. The left half is filled with strange-looking rock formations called hoodoos. Towers of weathered, eroded sedimentary rock, hoodoos are found in arid regions of planet Earth and are particularly abundant in the southern Utah. Bright star Antares at the heart of the celestial scorpion (Scorpius) is on the right, Altair, marking the neck of Aquila (the Eagle) is in the middle, and Deneb, the tail of Cygnus (the Swan) is on the upper left.
