Object Star Trails over The Homer Spit

In this shot of the Homer Spit at night, you can see the trails left by the stars.

In the lower left, the two shorter, brighter streaks are Irridium satelite flares, caused by sun reflecting off the solar panels of these communication satelites as they tumble in space.
