Watch Stars and Meteors Over a Waterfall in Michigan's Tahquamenon Park

April 24, 2018—Below the rising wave of the Milky Way and the Lyrid meteor shower, the Upper Falls of the Tahquamenon River rushes in auburn tannin streaks into ice-edged eddies. Beyond the waterfall’s plunge pool, the river's surface is still frozen, well into spring. In the forest of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, distant cities' glare can't dull this spectacle. Photographer Dustin Dilworth used software to find the date and time for the stars' path through the picture. With three cameras, Dilworth took some 6,000 photos in the early hours of April 19, part of International Dark Sky Week, which raises awareness of light pollution.
