Blue Flame, Colour photograph (Giclée) by Shane Lamb. Alaskan night sky is dark from August to April. The Aurora is a natural light display caused by charged particles from the sun interacting with the earth's atmosphere. When these particles collide with oxygen, yellows and greens are produced, with nitrogen they produce reds, violets and rarely blues

The Milky Way Over Monument Valley   Only at Monument Valley USA would you see a picturesque foreground that includes these iconic rock peaks called buttes. Buttes are composed of hard rock left behind after water has eroded away the surrounding soft rock. In the above image taken about two months ago, the closest butte on the left and the butte to its right are known as the Mittens, while Merrick Butte can be seen just further to the right.

#GalaxyAndromeda | Infrared The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224, is a spiral galaxy approximately 780 kiloparsecs (2.5 million light-years) from Earth. It is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way and was often referred to as the Great Andromeda Nebula in older texts. It received its name from the area of the sky in which it appears, the constellation of Andromeda, which was named after the mythological princess Andromeda.

The irregular shaped dust cloud at the top of this image is a remnant of supernova explosion SNR 0509-68.7 (also known as N103B) in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighboring galaxy of the Milky Way just over 160,000 light years from Earth. Captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, the image was released on March 30.
