As seen on the National Geographic News in a clear summer night of Sugar Lake in the British Columbia, Canada, stars trail around the north celestial pole near the direction of star Polaris (top left). The northern horizon is painted in green by the northern lights or Aurora Borealis. Click on the star-pattern icon above the image to see single short-exposure image of this scene displaying the faint Milky Way in the constellations Cassiopeia and Perseus. Yuichi Takasaka/
