The Orion Constellation

My new camera takes amazing pictures of the night sky. I went outside late last night and took a picture of the Orion constellation over my house. I was surprised by how good the picture turned out. I was also surprised that the camera shutter was only open for 64 seconds, and yet the stars all appear streaked. At first, I thought the picture blurred, but the trees were focused, and the stars all streaked in the same direction. This implies to me that my camera actually captured evidence of the earth spinning in just 64 seconds.
