Behold, directly overhead, a certain strange star was suddenly seen...
Amazed, and as if astonished and stupefied, I stood still.

how I took the photo./light pollution

This is an exposure of a few seconds and high ISO(sensitivity). The camara was sitting on my backpack (no tripod). There's no lighting in the park. The sky is almost white due to light pollution. The light pollution is also providing enough light for this low resolution noisy picture. But you can make out people, telescopes, red flashlights, the ground, the trees, and the sky.

Please leave some comments so I know if anyone is reading this and looking at my picture, and what thoughts and feeling people have. Thank you.
