Cornell’s Facebook page explains:

“This image shows the movement of stars around Polaris (the North Star, which remains constant) over a period of about an hour.”

“100 pictures were taken at regular intervals with long exposure and then combined to get this image. Beautiful shot by Supriya Mishra!”
