Polaris above Prescott Valley, AZ

Add to Lightbox
A long-exposure image of the moonlit hills above Prescott Valley, Arizona.  This is a single-frame ~30-minute capture.  Due to the long exposure the planet's rotation on its axis causes the stars to leave trails ("star trails"), with the stars further from the north star having longer trails.
