The bright Milky Way from the coast of Oregon, south of Cannon Beach. The lights
 along the beach are primarily from Arch Cape.  This was a 30 second exposure at
 ISO 6400 with a 24mm lens set at f/2.5.  Cape Falcon is the dark peninsula just
 to the right of center on the water, with Castle Rock the dark spot further to
 the right.  The star just above and to right of Cape Falcon is Theta Scorpii,
less than 1 degree above the horizon.  At the very top of the frame is a
 Delta Aquarid meteor.
