Under the Milky Way
Posted by Michael Blanchette
Beavertail Point is located at the southern tip of Conanicut Island in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Lighthouses have stood here since 1705, with the present lighthouse dating back to 1856. The rocky point is exposed to strong wind and surf, but on this calm April night, the only motion was in the stars. The Milky Way can be seen rising south to southeast amidst bountiful stars.
