At Sandy Point Beach in Maine, the Milky Way glowed over the still water when this stunning image was captured.

Astrophotographer A. Garrett Evans took this image on March 12 at Sandy Point Beach in Stockton Springs, Maine. Evans went to the beach with a friend both hoping to capture the Milky Way  over an old pier in the Penobscot River.

"The skies were mostly clear and the temps were in the mid 30's which seemed a bit warm for this time of year, but that was welcomed," he wrote in an email to Space.com.
