Starry night, part deux

The rotation effect, of course, is caused by the movement of the Earth but the circular movement of the starfields has always fascinated me and is a difficult effect to capture on film (or digital chip).

But as I stood in the damp air last night and took in the beauty of the starlit night, all I could think to say is: “My God, that is incredible.”

And it was…and is…and, hopefully, always will be.
