Professional aviation photographer Mariano Rosales, who is also a full-time air traffic controller and passionate aviator, captured this image of his Cessna 170 at Havana Regional Airport in Illinois during EAA Chapter 1420’s stargazing campout in July. “For my 7-year-old daughter and me this was a night of firsts,” Mariano told us. “This was the first time we were able to camp under the wing of my 170B, and it was the first time she was able to explore the night sky and look at distant planets and nebulae through high-power telescopes.” To see more of Rosales’ exceptional aviation imagery,
