Star Trails over Ashton Observatory

Star Trails over Ashton Observatory

Located in rural Jasper Co. in central Iowa, home of the Des Moines Astronomical Society. This area was full of people during the 2 hr. exposure but there are no human figures in the image, only the light they left behind. Iridium 40 satellite flare above the trees on the right.

other sizes: small medium original
