Starry Night, Satellite, Rio Grande, Pilar, New Mexico

Starry night in the Rio Grande Gorge, Pilar, New Mexico. I was setting up a composition for the milky way over the gorge and river when I spotted a satellite in one frame, so I quickly kept exposing shots and made a composite of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites cruising across the skies here in NM. Personally, I think there is enough junk in space, plus, Mr. Musk plans to add some 80,000 satellites to the junk already up there. It’s quite a controversy among astronomers. Almost every frame that night had some man made object coursing across the sky. Thanks for looking. G

  1. Thank you (again) for sharing your imagery. I left Taos in 1994 and still feel it in my bones. I look at your work and I can smell the sage, feel the seasons and stretch my mind to fit the shape of the landscape once again. Keep it up.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and let me know your connection with this beautiful place and your compliments on my work. I’ll keep posting. Thank you again Jocelyn. G

  2. Love your work! Just want to say that I agree about Musk putting too much junk into space. There’s no appreciation of what is already there, just a quest for more money. Sad.
