Cone by the Light of a Crescent Moon

Sunset Crater Volcano and its surroundings are illuminated by the light of a thin crescent Moon while the Milky Way and Great Rift descend - 12 July 2015. Bright blue Vega at upper right is blurred by a high, thin cloud along the right edge of the frame. The yellowish light at lower left comes from Flagstaff, 12 miles to the southwest.
