It was a rare night in Kansas. Clear, hot and not a breath of air. Nothing stirred at all. The water was like a mirror. You could see structure in the Milky Way's reflection naked eye. What an Amazing night. I captured this 20 frame panorama. It's no trick this is exactly how it looked. Even the fish held still.

Color enhanced, saturated a bit but basically 25 sec shots stitched together for your enjoyment. Taken about 75 miles south of Kansas City the skies can be very good and this was one of those nights.
