Stars and Stripes

The spring Milky Way is bowing over a remote canyon in the US Southwest.

Green and red atmospheric airglow, red and blue astronomic nebulas and millions of colorful stars collaborate in colorizing the incredibly dark desert sky.

Below this heavenly display, some red and white striped sandstone rocks make the scene look like was taken from an alien world, instead of the country with stars and stripes in its flag.
