The Warrior and The Hunter

OrionOverMonumentValleyThought I’d share this stunning photo of the night sky above the iconic buttes of Monument Valley, courtesy of the good folks over at Astronomy Picture of the Day.  The bright “star” on the left side of the image is actually Mars (named for the Roman god of war), while the familiar Orion constellation (named for the mythical Greek hunter) occupies the right side of the photograph.  You can click on the image for a larger version.
