The photographer Dan Zafra from Capture the Atlas is used to travel to exotic places to take wonderful pictures of our sky. But his latest weekend adventure took him to a new place a little closer to home: the Adirondack Mountains. Located in northeastern New York State, this beautiful landscape is known as one of the darkest parts of the East Coast. Here he was able to photograph the Milky Way, but more importantly, the extremely rare Neowise Comet, which only passes through the Earth’s visual field every 6800 years.
