Observer: Fred Stauffer
Location: Gondiswil, Switzerland
Date: April 1, 1997 19:50, 21:15 UT
Camera: Olympus-2n, 50mm/f=1.4 lens, tripod mount unguided. The images were scanned by Remo Nyfeler from 20x30cm paper prints.
First image: 19.50 UTC, Kodak RG 400, 7 sec. The Jura-Mountains in the background are in a distance of 28 kms.
Second image: 21.15 UTC, Kodak Ektar 1000, 25 sec. For receiving better effect, I "painted" the tree's top with the beam of a flash-light by moving it rapidly back and forth during 8 seconds.
