Day 1 of See The Light on Molokai, Hawaii. Participants arrive from as far away as Canada. Molokai greets them with a spectacular sunset and show of stars. Below is the Veitchi palm off the front porch of my cabin at the Hui Hoolana.
What are Star Trails?
Simply stated, star trails are the streaks in a photograph left by stars during a time exposure as the Earth rotates. Objects in the foreground of the photograph remain sharp as they are not moving relative to the camera, while the stars, depending on which cardinal direction the camera is facing, will form concentric circles or streaks in the sky.
