Fireflies and star trails go together.

Elena Paschetto created a composite image from "197 long-exposure photos taken ona summer night in Sanfront, Italy and Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) featured it for their August 5, 2021 publication. 

The summary includes details about the photograph, bioluminescence, fireflies, and links, including student links.

Looking up is one way to appreciate and wonder about the cosmos (not so easy in cities); looking around, and looking down are other ways.. When the two shown in this image are joined together we are given a moment of great wonder.
