Rocket, Meteor And Milky Way In One Photo

Rocket, Meteor, and Milky Way over Thailand

Here’s a photo you don’t see every day. Taken at the National Park of Thailand, the photo contains a large swath of the Milky Way Galaxy, a meteor streak that just happened to occur at the time the photo was taken as well as a plume of an Ariane 5 rocket that had just launched from Kourou, French Guiana.
