Images like this are typically taken around Area 51.
I do like the effect though.
He he hee... I too liked it, though I could not believe it!
Plane was moving too fast for anything but the strong lights to leave an impression on the sensor.
I guess the plane appeared in the last few milliseconds of the long exposure shot, the shot was taken fully when the plane ended up where the lines ended. Guess most of the sky was already marked on the film where the plane should have been, though the sharp contrast of the lights cut through.
Still at least ghost image should be there I feel, any technical info on this?
