Thought I would shoot up tonight. It was an amazingly clear night. No meteors, but oh my, were the stars incredible. You couldn't see but ten or so with your eyes, but leave the shutter open for thirty seconds and Wow! But even thirty seconds is a tad too long because the earth is rotating so fast, the stars begin to streak. Look closely and you can see. Notice the stars have different colors. Many are yellow, some are blue, others are pinkish red. Some others are blue on one side and pink on the other. It's wondrous. Oh, and there is a planet in the sky. Saturn I believe.
Nikon D610, 30 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 400, 17mm (17-35mm) - 5182
