Virginia Night Sky Photography

Photography

This time-lapse photograph series was taken on May 10th, 2010, between 12am and 1:45am, just outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Over 80 individual exposures, each lasting 30 seconds, were later assembled in Adobe Photoshop to reveal the star trails and movement of the night sky.

The light against the horizon is minor “light pollution” from the city of Charlottesville, and just out of view in the upper left corner of this photo is the North Star.
