    that is one cool website , i did see a similar one for either manchester or london can't remember but it was proper jerky, like imightbewrong said that is one smooth site.

    anyone know how they do that? I'd love to do one and stick it on my site.

    Just went to rightclick it to see what would happen and you get a whole load of other options to view :

    fisheye
    architectural
    stereographic

    Not sure that is 'even better' than just looking at it on a big monitor in the first place :)

    Note, i know approximately ZIP about photography! :D


    But..... a wild guess would say that he's taken it with a long open shutter speed (is that right?) hence why he's caught the tracer fire and the orange bits are either flares or something else thats just been caught on the move....

    It's definitly a slow shutter speed, yes, but it still isn't obvious what that orange thing is - wondered if anyone knew.

    Actually it could be the glow from the burners of a jet

    My best guess is someone with a headtorch was moving during the timelapse. If you look at where the trail has a lot of activity (small space - lot of movement), to the left of that you can see a ghostly type figure - probably the person who moved and was caught in the shot :)
    (could be smoke though - I'm not sure)

    Edit: it's a similar colour and there's similar movement at the other spot where there's light in the background.

    Head-torch is a good shout - with a bright spot where he was stood still perhaps.

    Very close guess. It's actually a Cyalume (glow-stick). They are commonly worn in the elastics on the helmet cover, simply to enable safety staff on live firing ranges at night to see soldiers, and control them safely.
