A local wind generator in front of the south polar axis. In the lower left sky you can also see a smoke trail dissipating from a large shooting star just before I took this shot. Another 2 shots after this I had the axis placed perfectly, but it was real cold, the lens was fogging up and I was ankle deep in water, time to call it a night.
