On a clear night, when the weather conditions are just perfect, the view from Wolf Ridge in the Marin Headlands is stunning. Star trails and airplane lights create patterns in the sky in this 53 minute long exposure. The waxing full moon was high overhead, and the fog stayed low and out on the water. The San Francisco skyline was clearly visible, as well as the Sutro Tower, and antennas on San Bruno Mountain. Below is a crop of the left side of the image that shows the Transamerica Pyramid and top of the Golden Gate Bridge.
