A brilliant Milky Way illuminates strange rock formations as stars streak by.
Details: this image was created from more than 80 images to capture 40 minutes of star movement at the Paint Mines near Calhan, Colorado. Straight trails mark the line of the equator with curving trails of northern stars to the left and southern stars to the right.
Just for fun, I also converted these images into a time-lapse video so you can watch the show. Enjoy!
