Caption: Milky Way over an Atlantic coastline. The Milky Way (upper left) during moonset over the Atlantic coastline of Maine, north-eastern USA. The bright light at right is the 19th-century Pemaquid Point lighthouse. In the foreground are eroded rock formations hundreds of millions of years old. Geologists study these metamorphic and igneous rocks to understand how the bedrock formed.
