Nightlife at RWY 31R in TWAN style. This is the best known spotting place in BUD, we called "patak" (watercourse or creek). The main lights are landing lights of airplanes. There are other airplane lights in the picture near the horizon. In the ground there are reflectors of cars. In the middle of circles the shortest strip is Polaris. The blue stars near the mid-horizon are stars of Big Dipper which is the best known formation in the northern sky, but this not constellation, it's only part of Ursa Maior.

What an astounding shot! Based on the angle of rotation, looks like a rather phenomenal 2h40m exposure!! Or am I missing something?

Let me guess: 2hours of exposure? At least the stars "walk" 30°

I particularly like all the bits in the main stream of lines going diagonally through the picture. Then, I like the concentric rings. Good idea, thank you.

I've never seen anything like this. The shot captures not only the solid trails of light left by the airliners' static lights, but the twinkles left by blinking lights, along with the stars' circular trails. This is just an outstanding shot!

This is an excellent shot of star trails, photographed with an open lens for 3 or so hours, thus showing the effect of the rotation of the Earth. And, the lights from landing planes are icing on the cake.
