Description

I'm thrilled that this image was published as an APOD on 2015 Out 19 !

APOD archive link: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap151019.html

Image taken with a fixed tripod. Stacked 100 frames for the sky reference. For the ground reference I've used information from one of the stacked pictures, making a composition with it in the final image.
