Engineer and daddy-to-be Brian d’ Arcy has created an amazing ceiling display for his soon-to-be-born son’s nursery that ensures that the tyke will always be reaching for the stars. All told, he installed 596 fiber-optic strands (it would have been 600 but he broke 4) by drilling holes through the nursery ceiling and connecting them to a specialized light source in the nursery’s closet. The light source is designed to make the stars twinkle, ensuring that the little tyke is kept entertained by the faux-night sky.

Many photographers like to experiment with long exposure photography techniques, but an Australian Lincoln Harrison gives a new definition to the word “long”. A 37-year-old Victorian showcases a portfolio of mesmerizing long exposure star trail photography, with some of his photo shoots taking up to 15 hours. The photos are made at his personal favorite spot over Lake Eppalock, in the Australian outback. The star swirls is the result of the rotation of the Earth, and makes you think you’re witnessing the stars traveling across the sky.
