How to enable Astrophotography on this Pixel 3a’s Google Camera 7.2 APK?

As far as I know there no options to enable Astrophotography mode. This is enabled by default if following conditions are met.
There are few things required primarily to enable Astrophotography:
– It can be enabled on Night Sight mode
– The phone must be kept static
– There must be low light condition
– It takes few minutes for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met

When I kept the phone static in front of an ample light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on even after leaving it for few minutes.

I used a tripod to keep the phone static and when I exposed the phone to low light conditions the atro photography mode automatically turned on and flashed on the screen. Below are some of the photos I have taken when the Astrophotography mode is ON.

It takes 30 seconds to capture one image in this mode.
