...And I Think To Myself, "Maybe This World's Still Pretty Wonderful, After All."

Yes, this is a real picture. It was taken by photographer/adventurer Mike Mezeul. Yes, that's the Milky Way. And the Moon. And lava (from the Kīlauea Volcano).

Oh, and yes, that's a meteor.

I was literally in shock. It was my third frame to shoot after the sun had set, and after I saw the meteor, I knew I couldn’t beat that image, so I packed it up and headed back.
