Image from the Merck Forest preserve in East Rupert, VT on May 3, 1997 at 01:45 UT. It was made with a 50mm f/1.8 Series-E Nikkor lens, and is a 15-second exposure on PPF-400. The mountains in the "foreground" are in Vermont...through the horizon haze just above these you can faintly see the Adirondaks in New York.
