Milky Way in the Desert Sky of Arizona.

This beautiful photo, from Earth Picture of the Day, is captioned:

The photo above was taken at 4:04 a.m. (local time in Arizona Time) from the Saguaro Astronomy Club -- about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson. A Messier Marathon telescope was used to make this image showing the rising Milky Way seemingly adjacent to low clouds, which are being illuminated by light pollution from Tuscon. Note, the brilliant object at upper right is Jupiter.
