Milky Way at Devil's Tower

Milky Way at Devil's Tower

I would have liked to see the Milky Way above Devil's Tower, but this view is what you get in August. It was a bonus that Mars appears between the two. Also, there is some blue airglow in the sky running perpendicular to the Milky Way. As dark as the night sky gets at Devil's Tower, there was still some light pollution on the horizon.
