What is this? Moon lightning?!
1

Hello All, could anybody please shed some light (no pun intended) on what could cause this 'trail' coming from the moon. I wasn't trying to take a serious photo just trying out a new camera I'd just acquired.

It was taken through a window from a completely dark & empty room. On a tripod.

30 s exposure

F5.6

ISO 160

Focal length 6.1mm

My wife, who is a bit of a hippy, is convinced I'd captured some strange moon energy ray! I cannot work it out as there were no other light sources in the room, not even on the camera.

I'm sure there's a simple explanation though from someone with more photography knowledge than me (which is probably everybody on this forum!)

Moon lightning?
