These pictures were taken from Camano Island, Washington, USA. All photos were shot using Kodak Royal Gold 1000 film on an equatorial drive platform. These pictures were taken Sunday 3/24 around midnight. Atmospheric transparency was excellent.

First image: 50mm lens at f/2.0. Exposure: 2 minutes. Note irregularity in tail about 1/4 of the way back. I think this is the best shot of the bunch.

Second image: 50mm lens at f/2.0. Exposure: 1 or 2 minutes (not sure about this one.)

Third image: 28mm lens at f/2.8. Exposure: 2 minutes.

Fourth image: 28mm lens at f/2.8. Exposure: 3 minutes. Anomalous structure in upper right is chimney with TV antenna attached.
