The stars and clouds move across the night sky in this 25 minute long exposure under a full moon. Grantsville is a gold mining ghost town in Western Nevada near Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park. Miners struck gold in 1863, and at one time Grantsville had a population of over 800 people. Today Grantsville has the picturesque ruins of the old stamp mill and about 6 buildings.
