Star trails around the southern celestial pole due to the rotation of the Earth on its axis. The Anglo-Australian Telescope is located in the center. The large cloud in the left of the image is the milky way, and the two smaller clouds are the large and small Magellanic clouds, respectively.

Location: Coonabarabran, Australia
