Starry, starry night – outback star trails

Starry, starry night – outback star trails | Australian Culture | Scoop.it

The night sky over the Australian outback is a wonder – 5000 bright specs on a pitch black dome stretching to the horizon in every direction, suspended in eerie silence.  If you had a couple of hundred million years to spare you could watch them make a complete orbit of the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way.  As you probably don’t, photographer Lincoln Harrison gives you the opportunity to see the star trails caused by our twenty-four hour daily tumble through the cosmos.  New and mesmerising views of a 13.2 billion year old galaxy.
