“If you could see the earth illuminated when you were in a place as dark as night, it would look to you more splendid than the moon.”
— Galileo Galilei, 1632
When the blistering sun finally dips below the horizon in Arches National Park, Utah, the night skies come alive. The cool, clear desert nights offer unrivaled views of the cosmos. Long exposures such as this humble and remind us that we are a mere speck hurtling through the infinity of space.
Makes you wonder who or what is looking back down at us…But, whoever is looking back is probably thinking, “Damn, those are some cool tights.”
