Sky Delights Over Sweden

This night was a sky enthusiast's delight. While relaxing in Sweden last
week, many a cosmic wonder was captured with a single snapshot. They are
described here from near to far. In the foreground are nearby trees and
more distant snow covered mountains. In silhouette, Clouds can be seen
just above the horizon, and a careful eye can even discern the more distant
green and red auroras which occur in Earth's upper atmosphere. Red emission
nebulas dot the sky, including the Heart and Soul Nebulas, IC 1396 and the
North America Nebula. Running diagonally from the upper left to the lower
right is the majestic glowing band of our Milky Way Galaxy's central plane.
More distant than everything else, appearing as it did over two million years
ago, is the Andromeda galaxy, visible above the horizon toward on the lower left.
