THE AURORA BOREALIS, THE MILKY WAY AND A METEOR Tommy Eliassen of Tommy Eliassen Photography captured this striking image of the Northern Lights and the Milky Way, as well as a meteor streaking through the sky above Ifjord, Finnmark, Norway on September 25, 2011.

Above, a lot of determination has been combined with a little digital manipulation to show Mercury's successive positions during March of 2000. Each picture was taken from the same location in Spain when the Sun itself was 10 degrees below the horizon and superposed on the single most photogenic sunset.
