Summer Lights at Bonito Lava Flow

Ribbons of green and red air glow paint the night sky over Bonito Lava flow at Sunset Crater National Monument, Arizona. Cassiopeia anchors the Milky Way at the center of the frame while the Andromeda Galaxy peers over the shoulder of our own galaxy just right of center. About an hour later, a rare, southerly burst of aurora illuminated this northern horizon with red and pink.
