The Orange Jugs ::::: Coaldale, Nevada

From inside the burned down gas station at Coaldale Nevada.  Pure full moon light (and passing late-night traffic), and stacked exposures, yielding 15-minute star trails.

    Thank you for the most beautiful night time photos I have ever seen. I love the star streaks, too, and have never noticed them on photos before. How is it that they appear as streaks on the photo?

      Thanks. It’s because the heavens spin around the north star, and these exposures are long enough that the movement of the stars is captured.
