ISS Startrails – TRONized

Austrian photographer Christoph Malin assembled this short by stacking image sequences taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station:

These “stacks” create the Star Trails, but furthermore make interesting patterns visible. For example lightning corridors within clouds, but they also show occasional satellite tracks (or Iridium Flashes) as well as meteors – patterns that interrupt the main Star Trails, and thus are immediately visible.
