Editor's Choice: Photo of the Day

 

Photographer: Rónán McLaughlin

Today we feature an incredible image by Rónán McLaughlin taken on a starry night at Malin Head, Co. Donegal. The Milky Way is aligned behind the tower to create a really dramatic composition. Rónán comments: 

"""We live on a hunk of rock and metal that circles a humdrum star that is one of 400 billion other stars that make up the Milky Way Galaxy which is one of billions of other galaxies which make up a universe which may be one of a very large number, perhaps an infinite number, of other universes. That is a perspective on human life and our culture that is well worth pondering."" Carl Sagan
