Starry, Snowy Night
Wilson said he took the panorama in “a series of vertical stills, with a 60º rotation between each shot. [The photo above] was the composition I found most pleasing,” he explained. In the description below, Wilson begins delineating what he saw. He said, he starts at the southeast on the right, and ends approximately West on the left side.
I’m not sure what outpost that Blue Glow on the left might be. Coming from the right, which was to my SE, the first orange/yellow glow is the Kneeland Airport just to the west or northwest of me. Continuing left, the faint glow behind that lone oak is a homestead. Now we’re looking northward, and the Blue Glow is the next glow, and being the first glow to the far north, maybe it’s Blue Lake? Then continuing left, the yellow glows must be McKinleyville and Arcata. Eureka is just out of view past the left edge.
