Andromeda, Jupiter, Milky Way over Montana

We’re now in the middle of the best time of year to see Jupiter, and it’s near the starry arc of the Milky Way. Enjoy this panoramic image from John Ashley in Montana.

Wide symmetric image of Milky Way arcing over a river, tiny fuzzy oval at left, bright dot to right.

John Ashley captured this panoramic image – about 200 degrees wide – on June 4 at Glacier National Park and the North Fork of the Flathead River. Thank you, John.
