I really enjoyed sitting out under the stars while capturing photos of the Milky Way last weekend. I was amazed at the number of stars that I was able to see once the moon set and true darkness set in. Here’s a photo of the stars over the Upper Barker Reservoir about 4 a.m.

I love the streak of light in the photo as well. While I did see two very distinct shooting stars while I was photographing, I don’t think I captured any of them on film. I am pretty confident that the streak of light is a satellite flying overhead. Airplanes usually have a blinking light that shows up when photographed, and that streak of light doesn’t have that.
