Star Trail and Observatory

This photo was created from 100 separate 30-second-exposure photos, composited together to make the star trail that turns around Polaris, the North Star. A 5,200-pound balloon gondola hangs from a crane and moves toward the open doors of a building at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Md. The telescopes and instruments carried by the gondola, which are part of NASA's Balloon Observation Platform for Planetary Science (BOPPS), are calibrated by taking a long look at the stars and other objects in the sky.
