This picture has captured the summer's Milky Way and just rising dawn Moon in the eastern sky with a fish-eye super wide photo lens. And you can see glittering dawn Venus just near the Moon. After this scene, the short summer night was drawing to a close, dimmed Milky Way had disappeared beyond the dawn light.
