Wow! Bryce Canyon in southwest Utah has some of the most unique rock formations of any of the National Parks. In addition to the typical red-rock colors, there is a section that has coral pink colors. A must visit place!
Of course, while there I ventured out at night to take some nightscape pictures. Timing wasn't the greatest as it was only a few days before full moon. So the first night after we arrived I went out to Sunset Point just as the moon was setting. I only had a little over an hour before astronomical dawn to get the picture. Although the canyon was black to the eye, the long exposures revealed quite a bit of detail in the rocks. Sirius, the Dog Star in Canis Major, is the bright star near center.
A couple of nights later the full moon provided almost daylight-like illumination for the photo at the Paria View overlook. I was pleasantly surprised that some of the summer Milky Way shined through the strong moonlight. The bright "star" in the upper right is actually Saturn!
Take a look in the Nightscape section of the Astrophoto section.
