Common to both pictures are the film, Kodak Ektacolor Pro Gold (GPY) 400, and the semi-dark site just outside of Sval in southern Sweden.

The first image was obtained on March 8 1997, 19:40 UT with a 135 mm telephoto lens stopped down to f/4 and the exposure time was 4 minutes. The shadow in the lower right corner is a nearby tree.

The second one was shot the same evening at 18:53 UT with a 400 mm lens which was used wide open at f/5,6. Exposure time 8 minutes.
