(Overexposed) Astrophotographers in their natural habitat.
Exposure of clouds and stars starting to peak out. In these cases, most of the stars aren't visible until this exposure is made on the camera.
In spite of the clouds, this an other similar images are nice portraits of Sagittarius (Teapot) along with Mars, which is just to the right of the teapot lid. A week later, we have images of Mars on the left side of that lid.
When this photo was taken, I don't think the astronomers knew there was a gap in the clouds with a star within. It was discovered after the exposure here.
Example of how the Moon is overexposed. It's a "daylight" kind of object, but we're using an exposure appropriate for background stars.
This gives a nice example of how much "glow" there is from the lighting around the school. The glow of the basketball backboards is caused by stray light from the school.
