Taken next to "Layton Castle," Layton, Utah, on east bench. Settings:ISO 200, 1/25 second at f/16 aperture. Balanced in Photoshop (levels, curves, noise, dust spots). Cropped to 1/3 size (1/9 original area). First clear night in nearly a week, thus no sighting last few nights. Barely visible. Probably last sighting in North America, except for some lucky souls along the west coast.
