Colors of an Enchanted Night

"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day." -Vincent van Gogh

For astrophotographer Mike Taylor in central Maine, that quote is very true. When most people are fast asleep Mike is out capturing stunning and surreal night sky photos so incredible van Gogh himself would have been in awe. Featuring millions of sparkling stars and vibrant curtains of color, his images look more like a fantasy painting than a photograph. Some say he is lucky because each night he captures something magical; a vivid fireball that appears from nowhere, a captivating aurora dancing with the Milky Way or airglow illuminating the dark sky.
