Monster Trail

image by Miguel Claro, Miradouro de Santa Iria – Azores, Portugal

In this full star/moon trail, we can see the different colors from each type of star. This scene captured shows a long exposure (integration) starting at the nautical twilight until the moonset behind a the cloudy sky, reflecting the light pollution coming from Ribeira Grande, as well from Lagoa and Ponta Delgada. The strong small path near the moon in the top edge of the image, belongs to planet Jupiter.
