Photo-Bombing The Stars

Damn satellites, photo-bombing in my astro-pix.
                                          .

Above is a pretty, open cluster of stars, M35 in the constellation Gemini.
                                            .

This is, of course, the fabulous Orion Nebula, the bad-ass-est nebula in the northern sky, being photo-bombed by a slow satellite. In 30 seconds, that trail is as far as it travelled.

  2. Hi Craig,

    Thanks. It's rare to capture two like that in one night. The little screen on the back of my camera doesn't show those, so it's only when I looked at them on the computer that I noticed these interlopers.
