Maui Wowie

I drove about 30 minutes from our hotel to a beautiful spot on a cliff overlooking the ocean with a southeastern view. Which was perfect for taking photos of the Milky Way. After the moon set, I was able to capture the cosmos in its full glory. The long exposures made the lights of Kihei & Wailea brighter than they actually appeared, but the Milky Way was high enough to rise just above the light pollution. There is also some substantial green airglow, a faint emission of light by our planet's atmosphere.
