Image Details:

I was setting up to photograph the Milky Way over the Windows section of Arches National Park in the very early morning hours of April 17, 2023. As I was, I noticed a couple Lyrid meteors in the northeast sky. I set the camera up in that direction and was able to capture a couple photos. This is the best one. I then proceeded to get a nice pano photo of the Milky Way over the North Window. Life is good!
