Thanks scooter97, I think you are right about the Pleiades.

I really enjoyed this image in voting and I like it even more now that I have had a chance to look at it in depth. Do I see Pleiades in the upper left!! Sweet!

The horizon may look a bit off, but the camera was leveled. It's a Canon 7D with a built in level.

The horizon seems a bit off but those dancing lights definitely make up for it. I was pretty high up northern Canada once, got to see some huge ones, one of the most beautiful things in the world. Thanks for sharing this. :)

Very nice shot, awesome sky. The horizon looks slightly askew and perhaps the contrast could be pumped a tad.
