Caption: Milky Way over an Atlantic coastline. This view shows stars and nebulae (red) in the region of the Milky Way in the constellations of Canis Major, Orion, and Taurus, seen over the Atlantic coastline of Maine, north-eastern USA. The planet Jupiter is the brightest object (upper centre). Sirius, closer to the horizon at centre left, is the brightest star. Visible near the horizon is airglow (red and green), the natural emission of the Earth's upper atmosphere. The glow of light from a nearby city is on the horizon at far right.
