    This is an image of the T.A. Moulton Barn at Grand Teton National Park with the Milky Way shooting into the sky, taken in 2017. The sky was so dark because it was a new moon (we were there for the total solar eclipse, so the moon was on the opposite side of earth at the time) - we couldn't even see where we were going without a flashlight. I've never seen the Milky Way as visible as it was that night. We lucked out with zero clouds in the sky that night as well. For this photo specifically, there were car lights in the distance that were lighting up the barn perfectly. Near the top of the image, to the right of the Milky Way is the star Vega, the brightest star in the constellation of Lyra, and the fifth brightest star in the night sky, only a mere 25 light years away from us. A little below that star, just to the left of the Milky Way, is the star Altair, the brightest star in the constellation of Aquila and the twelfth brightest star in the night sky, only a mere 16.7 light years away. Vega and Altair form two of the vertices of the Summer Triangle (Deneb is the other).
