To capture this image, Tyler from Michigan Sky Media got to the Pointe Aux Barques Lighthouse at 11:00pm this past Friday night. Tyler positioned his camera so the tip of the lighthouse lined up with the North Star and began taking pictures to capture star trails around the lighthouse. To do this, Tyler took 350 thirty second images in a row from midnight to 3:00 am. He then used software to stitch all 350 images together to form his first star trail image he has ever created. Because the North Star does not move, all the surrounding stars rotate in the sky to make these perfect circles.
