Stars glittered across the night sky as I stood at the edge of an overlook embracing the mountain altitude. I was visiting Blue ridge parkway after many years and the views never gets old. It was the night of the peak of the Lyrid Meteor shower. Silence filled the night as the Milky Way arched over the night sky. I made a few easy vertical clicks panning horizontally to capture the spiral band of our Milky Way Galaxy. I watched in awe as billions of stars lit up the night sky. And soon the moon rose and the mists filled the night.
