Cabin Star Trails


Constellations and clusters enter and exit the sky behind an abandoned cabin during a 90-minute exposure: Perseus at upper left, Auriga at lower left, and the blue Pleiades star cluster rises just to the right of the cabin. Airplanes also mark their passing with faint diagonal streaks.
