Pikes Peak Startrails
The summer night sky sets over Pikes Peak in this extended exposure. Pikes Peak is illuminated by the city lights of Colorado Springs. The bright starstreak high above the summit is Arcturus; while the even brighter streak above the cirque (to the left) is Jupiter. The glow on the summit is from the summit house. The exact date of this image is unknown.
