NASA PICTURE OF THE DAY
Milky Way over Troll’s Tongue
Image Credit & Copyright: Ruslan Merzlyakov (RMS Photography)Explanation:
You have to take a long hike
to see the Troll’s Tongue — ten hours over rocky terrain. And in this case, it took three trips to capture the landform
below a clear night sky. Trolltunga
itself is a picturesque rock protrusion
extending about 700 meters over mountainous cliffs near Lake Ringedalsvatnet
. The overhang
is made of billion-year-old Precambrian bedrock
that was carved out by glaciers during an ice-age about 10,000 years ago. The featured picture
is a composite of two exposures, a 15-second image of the foreground Earth
followed 40 minutes later by an 87-second exposure of the background
sky. Thousands of discernable stars dot the backdrop starscape
in addition to billions of unresolved stars in the nearly vertical band of our Milky Way Galaxy
