The Milky Way and the northern lights seem to merge over Finnmark, Norway, on September 25. Auroras are created when charged solar particles collide with molecules in Earth’s atmosphere, infusing the molecules with extra energy that then gets emitted as light. - Photograph by Tommy Eliassen Eliassen.

The totally eclipsed moon shines amid the dense stars of our Milky Way in a composite picture taken June 15 from the Alborz Mountains of Iran. The eclipsed moon glows orange-red due to indirect light from the sun, which becomes reddish as it passes through Earth’s atmosphere.
Last week’s lunar eclipse was the longest and deepest total lunar eclipse seen in more than a decade. The best viewing locations were eastern Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and the western tip of Australia.
