"I have always been fascinated with astronomy and the night sky since I was a kid," says Danson. "The road to the summit of Mt. Evans is only open for a few months of the year because of snowfall. During the spring and summer of 2013, I spent more than 30 nights at the summit waiting for a cloudless night sky. This photograph includes the Milky Way's galactic core and spiral arm, with the Meyer-Womble Telescope in the foreground, and with the yellow sea of light pollution, which is the entire city of Denver, Colorado."
