Star Trails over Willard Clock Museum – 16″ x 20″ – Aluminum

Photographer: Len DiPinto

This is an 16 x 20″ picture on aluminum with a float mount (shown in picture) for easy wall hanging.

In this image, the Willard Clock Museum in Grafton, MA is illuminated in yellow from a security light in the foreground. The background sky shows the apparent motion of the stars around the North Star during the 100-minute duration of the exposure. This type of photograph is called a Star Trail. In addition to the star motion, the different colors of the stars can be seen.
