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
