Stargazing, Zion National Park, Utah, USA – by Sam Leeds

“This was recorded just after dusk at a campsite outside Zion National Park. I was on a camping trip with my dad and we stepped outside the tent to see the stars. You can hear him remark on the visible air traffic in the sky about 15 seconds in. There are also the sounds of crickets, tyres on gravel as other people pull into camp for the night and some distant laughter of people at the communal dining tent. This was the clearest I had seen the milky way in a long time. The attached photo is a long exposure shot of that night’s sky.”
