Vega, Beautifully Blue

I often overlook many of the common stars visible in the night sky. Though in taking these stars for granted, I miss out on a chance to capture how beautiful they actually are. This is Vega, the fifth brightest star in Earth's sky. 25 light years distant and 2x the mass of the Sun, Vega is stunningly beautiful. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
