This scene from Acadia National Park is a 360 degree panorama at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Tremont, on the southwestern side of Mount Desert Island, Maine. All the trees and rocks are illuminated by the red shining lighthouse (no, it's not the red light district!). Bright planet Jupiter is just peeping above the clouds and close to the center of our milky way.
