Stars

Capella, found in the constellation Auriga is the seventh brightest star in Earth's sky, the sixth in the night sky. Capella is a bright white star that resides at 42.8 light years distant and is actually made up of 4 stars across 2 star systems that all share a gravitational interaction. Capella is a winter time star in the Northern Hemisphere and the second brightest star in the winter sky for us in the Northern Hemisphere. I shot this at Frosty Drew Observatory on October 6, 2016

A collection of photographs shot at Frosty Drew Observatory of stars. With so much interest in capturing deep sky objects, stars generally go overlooked in astrophotography. Though many of the bright stars visible in our night sky are quite beautiful and full of colors.
