Image Details:

The night sky in the southeast direction. Along a trail thick with trees on both sides, there was a little opening with a view of the sky, so I walked back to the car not too far away to get the camera and tripod to take pictures.
Vega is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra The Lyre, and the 5th brightest in the sky. Altair is the brightest star in Aquila (eagle in Latin), and the 12th brightest in the sky. Alpha Scuti is the brightest star in Scutum The Shield. Lyra appears just over and Aquila and Scutum appear part of the Milky Way.
