Galaxy Photobomb

When an entire galaxy (faintly) photobombs your night sky picture!

I was sorting out some of my recent images from the west coast and spotted the Andromeda galaxy. That’s my camper van at the bottom looking west over the sea near Arasaig. Sky glow is from the recently set Sun.

That fuzzy elongated smudge I’ve highlighted is the combined light from over 400 billion stars. A completely separate island universe over 2.5 million light years away.

Here’s a few other pictures from this excursion posted below.
