You’ve heard of star trails? As Earth spins under the sky, the stars appear to move. When a camera captures that movement, that’s called a star trail. We’ve seen many, many beautiful star trail photos. But it’s not just the stars you can capture. You can bring the moon into the shot, too, as these photos show. Thanks to all who post on EarthSky Facebook!
Deborah Byrd created the EarthSky radio series in 1991 and EarthSky.org in 1994. Today, she serves as Editor-in-Chief of this website. She has won a galaxy of awards from the broadcasting and science communities, including having an asteroid named 3505 Byrd in her honor. A science communicator and educator since 1976, Byrd believes in science as a force for good in the world and a vital tool for the 21st century. "Being an EarthSky editor is like hosting a big global party for cool nature-lovers," she says.
