Renfrew, Scotland
Details:
Comet Lulin passing Saturn on the evening of the 23rd. 3 X 2min exposures using Dynax 5D & 300mm lens iso 800. The multiple trails above the the comet tail are images of a single object with a significantly different motion to the comet itself. May be an artifact as not visible optically at the time.
