13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Milky Way Over First Butte Lookout

My daughter and I drove up to First Butte Lookout during a camping trip to Winthrop, Washington. We planned on star gazing and captured this image during the peak of the Perseid meteor shower. The smoke from local forest fires had just cleared before the shot was taken.
