Star trails and aurora

Aurora star trails

The planet Jupiter fleeing with the rest of the stars ahead of an auroral arc.

This is my first attempt at star trails. Not bad for a first try! It's a composite of many 30 second exposures. The sky was clear when I started, then the aurora showed up to make things greener. Jupiter is the bright thing, and the Pleiades cluster is just about to disappear behind the tree just left of center.
