Comments: Because the earth's axis points towards the North Star long time exposures create the illusion that all stars rotate around--Polaris. Such photography, of course, would be impossible in some areas of our country because of light pollution, but that's not the case in Organ Pipe National Monument, an integral component of the Sonoran Desert.
