Sunday Nature Stills – 10/06/2019

I didn’t originally intend that this image was one that I would want to keep, but I think there are several interesting things going on, so I decided to share it anyway.  I took this long exposure while I was setting up my camera for a meteor shower one night. The bright star in the center is the North Star (Polaris).  It’s interesting to note that Polaris is very close to the rotational axis of the earth, but not quite perfectly aligned. I like that you can see a portion of the milky way as an area of denser stars on the right side of the image. It’s also interesting to note that there is a lot of color variation in the stars.
