Today’s blog image takes us back to Saturday night when we were attempting to spot the PAN-STARRS comet. As I had reported in my previous blog post, we never did see the comet but we did take the opportunity to capture some images of the night sky. This star trails image, which I sort of think looks like a bunch of shooting stars, is one of those images.
I have done a number of star trail images before, but I can say that I am far from an expert. I still get excited when one comes out better than I expected when I start shooting. This one is a great example, I was actually expecting all of the stars to arc in the same direction, but was thrilled when this one came out with arcs in two directions.
