Let's see your favorite shot of the stars. For the purpose of this challenge you can submit shots of stars and longer star trails- however, the star trails/ stars must be clearly visible. Please don't submit an image where you have moonlight or daylight/ twilight washing out the stars. We don't want to see just a little smattering of stars, but a whole lot of great stars against a dark night sky. Please ensure that there are no animals or people in the photograph. All complaints related to entries in this challenge, must be made during the submission phase. Once the submission phase ends and voting starts, complaints will not be entertained. Have fun!
