"Who among us has never looked up into the heavens on a starlit night, lost in wonder at the vastness of space and the beauty of the stars?"

Jeb Bush

No moon in the sky at the time of this exposure. The light on the snowy peaks is from the megalopolis glow that is the front range. In other words, the mountains caught the light pollution from behind me.
