Waiting for the aliens to start crawling out of the cracks.. It would be pretty fitting
Looking at this picture on my camera was the first real moment that I realized I was surrounded by all of these odd shapes and sizes of rock and earth.

Far away Friday, feauturing Long Islanders in distant places. Compared to Long Island, a place like Utah is underneath an ocean of stars... Though it's not quite like the Atlantic.
Floating a top the thinker's head here is the Andromeda Galaxy, our closest neighbor, and a spiral galaxy just like the one we are within. You can see Andromeda throughout the early night on Long Island if you look low on the Northwestern horizon, but not for much longer as it will sink lower every night, until it comes up again on the opposite side of the Milky Way for its place in the summer sky.
Photos from places other than the island will only be featured on Fridays. Tag your Long Island night photos, or ones you as a Long Islander have taken elsewhere, with #lislandastro to be shown on our page
It’s been a long winter waiting for the core to come back out. Hoping to get out there tonight to start off the season but there seems to be no such thing as clear sky’s recently! This is a stacked shot from fall 2017 at Frisco Pier during blue hour.
The Eagle Nebula, a vast cloud of gas and dust where stars are being born, lies some 7,000 light years distant in the direction of the constellation Serpens. Hot, newborn stars 🌟 illuminate the gas. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has taken pictures of dramatic "pillars" of dense molecular hydrogen and dust within the nebula. These pillars are slowly "evaporating" under the glare of intense radiation from massive stars 🌟 that were recently born nearby. Emerging from the eroding tips of the pillars are dense globules of gas and dust. Though tiny in the image, these globules are as wide as our entire solar system. New stars are forming from gas condensing within these stellar cocoons, a process that takes about one hundred million years.

This morning's image by @sorryoilpan was taken heading out of Camp Hero State Park a late night mid last summer, when the Milky Way is high in the sky. As the days go by, the Milky Way will be up earlier and earlier. Get out, shoot, and tag your photos with #lislandastro to be feautured!

Get lost in the stars 🌟 .
This was my first session shooting the full cream gluten free almond milky way in tassie after a week or so of overcast nights was very exciting seeing it in a different form then back home.
This was taken at St. Helens
Can never get over Falcon 9's first stage propulsion landings! They are always so neatly executed. Sit back and watch this toasty video.🔥 - Do let us know what you think about SpaceX?❤️
