Airglow & Andromeda Galaxy Over Yosemite Valley
- Title: Airglow & Andromeda Galaxy Over Yosemite Valley
- State/Province/Region: California
- Country: United States
- Nearest Area: Yosemite National Park
- Nearest Town: Yosemite Village
- Description: Taken Saturday, July 13, 2013 I saw one of the most amazing displays of airglow I've ever seen! (Airglow is not aurora as it behaves differently in our atmosphere, but is light that originates in the high atmosphere, associated with photochemical reactions of gases caused by solar radiation.) The bands of airglow were radiating from the East and were wavier than I've ever seen them. They were so strong, I could see them with the naked eye (which I've never been able to do.) This was taken at around1am at Tunnel View. Notice the Andromeda Galaxy in the sky above El Capitan.
- Gear: Canon 5d Mark II, Canon 24-70 f2.8 II lens
