Caption: Dish and star trails. Composite image of a satellite receiver-transmitter at night against a time-exposure photograph of star trails. The dish is part of the Land Earth Station at Goonhilly in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It serves the INMARSAT (International Maritime Satellite) that provides data and telephone transmissions. The circular formation of star trails are a result of the Earth's revolution in relation to the fixed stars.
