Just a reminder that we're, in fact, sitting on an ellipsoid that's rotating at high speeds and bursting through space. Whoa.

The glows over the horizon are the lights of the village in the next valley (the purple-ish glow on the left) and Milan, Italy (150 km away, the orange-ish glow on the right).
This is very intriguing
Wow, amazing view :)
Ok... now I'm REALLY jealous of this picture!
Is it because there's not so many startrails in your try (tookapic.com/ryak2002/8892), @Jesse? I think you might want to open up the aperture, this is at f/2.5 while your's is at f/13!
Oh ok! Thank you for the help!
You're welcome, @Jesse!
Oh there's also this one! 2.bp.blogspot.com/-zPHK6h6o2bo...
This one is really cool! I like how you managed to capture the polar star on the right. What ISO did you use?
@Jesse Then I am kinda surprised there's so much noise in yours! Even though there's also some in Startrails, it seems like less. Have you tried suppressing the noise in editing? Also, your picture is considerably brighter than Startrails, that might also play a role.
