Star Trails to the South!

This is the view to the south from my place. The glow in the sky is mostly from the city of Huntsville, Texas. The contrast has been enhanced a bit to eliminate some of the sky glow, but it's awfully hard to compete with all of those prisons and retail centers.

The stars of the constellation Sagittarius dominate the lower half of the image. A few aircraft trails are visible--mostly air traffic from Bush International Airport (IAH). The two short, bright streaks near the top (center and near the left edge) are probably satellites, but I have not been able to confirm this.

This image is a composite of 111 30-second exposures.
