This is the North Star over the western end of the San Fernando Valley. It was a breezy day and those always make for clear nights. The nights in the valley are more clear than you’d think. I shoot time lapse photography from time to time and there is usually a pretty good amount of star trails over the valley at night. Of course, if there is a marine layer that rolls in, the lights in the valley bounce off the clouds and light up the valley with a weird orange glow. And even more spectacular than that is when there’s a full moon during that time. The moon will light up the marine layer and the city lights bounce off it, and it will light up the valley quite nicely. I would like to capture it sometime.
