Pole to Pole Stars

    Prev Next

    Pole to pole stars in the Milky Way -- a starry night sky. The red glow is light "pollution" from nearby (5 miles) McCall, Idaho. (NOTE: the sky is lacking contrast because the moon has not completely set behind me.) Six hours later, I will point my camera 180-degree, in the opposite direction, and get this photo. The small town of McCall will now be on my right, and the earth's rotation will have turned the Milky Way about 60-degrees.

    See the awe-inspiring NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another!
