Planetary Rotation

Natures Universe > PhotoBlog > Planetary Rotation

Star trails (due to Earth’s planetary rotation), from just over 2.25 hours of exposure. The view is looking NW from our garden in N. Wales. Thanks to our dark skies, the location can be a good place for amateur astronomy.

The stars appear to rotate around the celestial pole (upper right).
