Sycamore Gap Starswirl


The beautiful Sycamore tree on Hadrian’s wall late one night.  The passage of time over 45 minutes and a sky full of stars.  Polaris, Cassiopeia and the Double Cluster high in the sky.

SKU: N/A Category:


The iconic Sycamore Gap late one January night. This is a stack of 140 separate photos taken one after the other and then laid on top of each other to show the rotation of the Earth over 45 minutes.  At the centre of the swirl you can see Polaris, the North Star.  This lies 433.8 light years away and is just to the side of celestial north.  To the left you can see the constellations of Cassiopeia and the Double Cluster high above Hadrian’s Wall.
