Caption: Atacama night sky, time-exposure image. Star trails over the Valley of the Moon (Luna Verde) in the Atacama desert of Chile. Star trails are formed by the apparent motion of the stars in the sky as the Earth rotates on its axis. In the southern hemisphere, the concentric star trails form around the south celestial pole.
