Tag Archives: Shrine Pass
July 15, 2012 – Summit County, Colorado
This Stellar Tuesday I bring Milky Way Panoramic over the Ten Mile Range as seen from Shrine Pass. The lights on the left are coming from Frisco, Copper Mountain, and I-70. The softer light on the right is from the more distant town of Breckenridge, Colorado.
About the Shot: I had a bunch of family in town this past week who were hoping to get a chance to see the Milky Way. With the current position of the band of Clouds, Dust, and Stars I chose Shrine Pass for its broad view of the sky which is not always easy to find in the mountains. The Milky Way stretched out completely across our field of view and I only captures a small bit of it here. It was still relatively early at 10:30 pm for viewing the night sky and being so the sky has a softer glow.
