Our photo of the day is brought to you by the dark night sky.

Is it any surprise that gazing at the heavens has been a preoccupation for mankind for as long as we've been able to tilt our heads back and look up? Even the simple act of viewing a photo like this beauty, taken by Rollie Rodriguez at Yosemite's Olmstead Point, is enough to spark all kinds of wonder. Thank you, night sky, for your stellar gifts; and thanks Rollie for the photo!
