This is a 2-minute exposure on hypered Kodak 2415 emulsion taken near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, by Gary Holmes (this is actually a Holmes/Holmes image since 11-year-old son Lee did the timing). The image was tracked but unguided using a 130-mm aperture Celestron Schmidt. The exposure was started at 0200 UT on 30 March.
