16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Milky way above the Fuego volcano, and lightnings below

The Fuego volcano was eruption. At 4000 meter, the sky was extremely clear and the Milky way was in the upper left corner. The lights in the clouds come from lightnings and from the city in the Valley. 2 months later, Fuego had a major eruption, and thousands of people died due to pyroclastic flows. I will go back in December to see how the volcano changed after the eruption.
