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!
