It looks like a warm white big and floody flashlight pointed at the sky.
Very nice picture indeed.
I wouldn’t have imagined a volcano was emitting so much light upward.

Cameras lie , just look how many stars there are compared to how many your eyes can see, just like Astro photography shows more than eyes can see.

^ Agreed, plus all the stars are streaks.

Beautiful photo though.

I agree. It is amazing what cameras are able to do these days. Quite astonishing.

I’m thinking a lot of what we are seeing in that picture is ‘volcanic ash’… not stars.

Would be amazing to live in a place where you can see that many stars and own a hi power telescope…

Is that one of the Magellanic Clouds in the star field behind the volcano’s glare?

Plenty of spill. I was going to say more like 2000K… a very warm tint. Lots of thermal conductivity going on there.

It’s hard to tell , we’re not use to seeing that many stars , if it is the Magellanic Cloud then you should be able to see both.

For cool white aficionados, there’s nothing like the beautiful blue glow of ionizing radiation :

> ionizing

Huff enough of that air to accumulate some of the escaping tritium and you’d glow for years

So for the volcano picture, any info on camera settings? The longer the exposure the more star-streaks it’d record.

Don’t read me wrong, i understood a long exposure was at work and that it’s not what you would see in person. However the exposure was not that long either since the fastest drifting stars did not draw very long lines – left of the image. Hence this caldera must have been emitting a good amount of light… Probably raw boiling magma in good quantities. Well, that’s how i imagine it works. Wink
