It took over 70 long exposures to get finally get this shot. Every time the shutter would close, I'd hit the release again, beginning another, sometime pausing to check the shot. Many many of them had lightning of some sort, as it was non-stop for about 2 hours, but none had several strikes within the 20 second exposure like this shot did.

What is the red line? It's a jet that flies through the frame. There is a second plane in the bottom right corner.

20 seconds @f4 ISO 100 18mm. 8.15.2008 about 1AM
