M44 aka Praesepe or "beehive cluster" is an open cluster located right in the center of the constellation Cancer (the crab). The stars in M44 range in distance from about 500ly-600ly from Earth. The majority of the blue stars in the foreground are Class A1 stars, meaning they are much hotter than the sun, generally over twice as hot. You can see this cluster with the naked eye in most small cities and rural areas, Although it will appear as a dim grey blob and not the crisp stars you see in this image- without a telescope or binocs. This was photographed with RGB filters, meaning this is a good representation of how the human eye would see these stars as far as color spectrum goes. Hope you enjoy the photo!

Each time a wave crashed the ocean illuminated from the bioluminescence. To me, it almost appeared as if the glow from our galaxy was within each wave.
It’s nearly impossible to forget an experience this special but I’m glad I had my camera there to document the moment as well!

Moonlight is really just sunlight that has to travel extra far before illuminating the earth (after it bounces off the moon). And for that reason, I take a little extra time to appreciate its perfect ambient glow among the universe.
