Orion the Hunter over High Sierra Lake, California. Good night, star gazers, tag us in your escapades. #StrayTgthr
Photo and caption by the wonderful @babaktafreshi : A week ago on a high Sierra lake in California. Stars of constellation Orion, the Hunter, rise in the morning during the Perseid Meteor Shower. At 9000 ft (3000 m), away from light pollution, it was a beautiful celestial display. The line of three stars in the middle is the Orion's Belt and the bright orange one on the left is Betelgeuse, a dying giant star and a candidate for the next supernova in the Galaxy. When happens it can become as bright as the moon in our sky.
