    And to think it’s amazing how heavy some Les Pauls are.

    Ok, so I admit to sitting here and watching that for longer than I should have. Precession is an odd thing and that’s a cool example of it.

    I'm sitting in class at San Francisco...
    Out of professor's face comes this sound...
    "Best guess is"
    I hold up my hand and say...
    "Could you repeat that please"
    She says
    "Best guess is"
    But
    But
    But
    This is science...
    She says this is science...
    We have ideas
    We have questions
    We investigate
    We gather data
    We make informed conclusions...

    I love scientific investigations...

    Great shot. Obviously a composite though.

    Ah, I'd figured it was simply a long exposure. The APOD page doesn't describe the photo technique for this one, which they sometimes do.

    It is colorful. Credited to a private photographer, so I don't think it's one of those NASA-style composites where they superimpose visible-light imaging with false-color IR & X-ray.

    The horizon looks decidedly unnatural but I think I assumed that was because it's strongly backlit. Looks like city glow out-of-frame to the left and moon just about to rise on the right.

    How would you think it was done - one image of the starfield and another for the meteor trails?

    He's on an equitorial mount at least, and the foreground is a different shot superimposed, otherwise the horizon would be blurred. A bunch of exposures stacked and layered in post. I'd bet he's also using a filter on some of the shots to highly the red hydrogen clouds.

    And there may be super massive black holes at the center of each one of them. Scary!
