Caption

Photograph (1-hour exposure time) showing circular star trails. The image was obtained by pointing the camera towards the pole star, Polaris, which is close to the Earth's axis of rotation; as a result, the Earth's circular motion is expressed by the circular motion of the stars around the North pole. Photographed from Mashpee, Massachusetts, USA, on August 8, 1975.
