Airplane Path


Airplane traces look like strange meteors with some dots on either side of the path. The sky is slightly brightened with moonlight - the moon just set behind the mountain. The brightest object on the sky was Jupiter, just about to set in the center-right of the frame. Despite the long exposure the noise is very low (see the insert). April 4, 2003.
