A Dream House with Stars

Vila Boim, Alentejo, Portugal

From the photographer: "I took this long combined exposure of stars around the north celestial pole from Alentejo, Vila Boim, 200km from Lisbon. In the sky we can enjoy the path of many stars and constellations like Ursa Major (right), Ursa Minor and Polaris (middle) as well Draco, and Cepheus. The movement of stars throughout the night - the rotation of the Earth - described a circular motion, as being near the Northern Star (Polaris). In the foreground we can enjoy a great field house with a pool surrounded by many fruit trees. The light drawings were made with a red and white lantern when I passed by." - Miguel Claro
