Star Trails over Halley


Tonight we have been blessed with a clear, very calm and not too cold weather – the outside temperature was around -34°C with 2 knots of wind. As there was no Moon in the sky this evening, the stars were really bright and clearly visible.

In the picture the star trails can be seen over the Halley VI modules, with a hint of Aurora to the left of the frame. This image stack spans a period of 48 minutes and consist of 145 20-seconds exposures.
