Oh, there’s a little technical wizardry involved in this one, stitching it together.
A more full description from Interior’s Facebook page:
Located in a remote and unspoiled part of northern Arizona, Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a geologic treasure. For those who can’t get a permit to places like The Wave, White Pocket is an equally stunning place to explore — day or night. Pictured here, the area’s unusual rock formation is crowned by the Milky Way with Saturn, Mars and the Rho Ophiuchus region all visible.

Dave Lane’s work amazes, doesn’t it?
