PICTURE OF THE DAY

Star trails

Star trails during totality

This photographer wrote, “I am a Boeing 747 Captain and an avid astroimager. Back on April 14, having flown the B747 from London into Phoenix, I rented a car and drove up to Mathers Point overlooking the Grand Canyon, arriving just as the Moon was about to enter the Earth’s shadow. I stayed there, fighting jetlag, for around 3 hours before driving to a Motel in Williams, AZ.” (Canon EOS 6D DSLR, Samyang 14mm lens, taken April 14, 2014)
