"Gemini Rising"

Name This Photo winner:

Sarah S. of Valdez, Alaska 

Date Taken:  September 26th, 2010

A September moon-rise climbs high in the southeastern sky illuminating the swath of fall colors blanketing the northwestern

Chugach Mountains and the valley below.  As the twin stars of Gemini rise just above the ridgeline in the east, double auroral arcs

raced and danced through the starfields in the windless night.  The glassy lake replicates the brief and delicate scene,

as the auroral display’s sweet emerald light blends itself with autumn’s golden landscapes.
