Caption: Starry sky at sunset. View of stars making up the summer triangle over a pinyon pine (Pinus monophylla) tree at sunset. The three brightest stars in the picture form the Summer Triangle, consisting of Deneb (upper right) in the constellation of Cygnus, Vega (lower right) in Lyra, and Altair (lower left) in Aquila. Vega is the fifth brightest star in the sky. Deneb, located some 1800 light years away, is 70,000 times as powerful as our Sun. Altair is only 10 times as luminous as the Sun, but is much closer at a distance of only 16.6 light-years. Photographed in the Anzo-Borrego Desert, Southern California State Park, USA.
