One of my students, Jack Kimball, asked if star trails could be observed and imaged under full-moon conditions. On the 8th, our moon was 98% illuminated. The camera's ISO was set at 200, a daytime setting. !00 images, each 25 second exposures, were combined to make this composite image. In the foreground is Moody Chapel at the G.W. Hinckley School.
