In a dark starry night of Uttarakhand, a state in northern India, this time-exposure image has captured the rotating sky around the north celestial pole (caused by the rotation of the Earth). The North Star, Polaris, appears very close to the pole. On the Earth the Uttarakhand state tree (Rhododendron, and locally Buransh) appears in full bloom. Ajay Talwar
