Earth's Spin

Star trails are caught by a long exposure photograph or photographs. The camera makes it look like the stars are moving around the North Star but in reality it is the earth's rotation causing this spinning appearance. You can view the "spinning" of the stars with the naked eye by finding the Milky Way and observing the movement over time. This photograph is a stack of 399 images, giving 2 hours and 13 minutes of movement. A brief appearance of the northern lights is always a welcomed treat! Northport, Michigan October 2017
