Orion, Taurus and the Pleiades form the backdrop to this eerie frozen landscape. Though the stars appear to gleam with a cold, frosty light, bright-blue stars like the Pleiades can be as hot as 30,000 degrees Celsius. Cooler orange stars such as Betelguese and Aldebaran are still a scorching 3500 degrees celcius. Born digital photograph entitled 'Star Icefall', by Masahiro Miyasaka, taken on 8th January 2011.
