From the photographer: “The Columbia Icefields and Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park, just before the waning Moon rose over the mountains to light the foreground, but as it was already lighting the peaks around the Icefields. The Milky Way is fading into the blue sky of a moonlit night. The Moon is rising just left of center, below the Pleiades cluster. The Big Dipper is at far left to the north.

This is a 360° panorama shot on the road (literally!) down to the toe of the Athabasca Glacier, using a 15mm full-frame fish-eye lens at f/2.8 for 8 segments at 45° spacings, each 60 seconds at ISO 3200 with the Canon 5D MKII.”
