Photographer Meg McDonald with Wild Northwest Beauty Photography has been dreaming of getting a shot of the Milky Way Galaxy as the moon rose, and it finally happened this month!
McDonald captured the video at Mt. Hood National Forest.
Watch as the bright planet Jupiter leads the dramatic Milky Way, Saturn, and Mars across the sky, followed moments later by the brilliant moon rising
The summer season is prime time for photographers to capture the center of the Milky Way Galaxy at night!
