Star trails over rusted boat wreck

Star trails. Star trails over the rusting wreck of a boat. Star trails are captured by long-exposure photography, in this case 10 hours. The lines of light are made by the relative movement of the stars through the night sky as the Earth rotates. The centre of the concentric trails (which lies below the horizon in this image) is the point in the sky directly above the earths Celestial Pole, (South Pole in the southern hemisphere, North Pole in the northern hemisphere.) The colours of the trails reveal the variety of colours and distances from the Earth of the planets and stars. 25th Feb, 1993

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing beauty of star trails over a rusted boat wreck. Through the art of long-exposure photography, this image captures the celestial dance that occurs in our night sky as Earth rotates on its axis. For an impressive duration of 10 hours, the camera's lens immortalizes the movement of stars, resulting in stunning concentric lines of light. At the heart of these ethereal trails lies a point directly above Earth's Celestial Pole - in this case, below the horizon. This celestial pole varies depending on one's location: it is located at the South Pole in the southern hemisphere and at the North Pole in the northern hemisphere. The vibrant colors exhibited by these trails offer a glimpse into both their diverse distances from Earth and their unique planetary or stellar characteristics. Dated February 25th, 1993, this photograph not only captures nature's awe-inspiring spectacle but also serves as a reminder of time passed. The juxtaposition between decayed shipwreck and cosmic wonder evokes contemplation about our place within both natural and man-made realms. This extraordinary image from Science Photo Library invites viewers to marvel at our universe's grandeur while appreciating how science can transform fleeting moments into timeless works of art.
