I don't know what to say about these other than they were captured with my Nikon P100, which I was surprized to see when I got to my computer.

Didn't visually see any sign of these.

So far I am pleased with the camera, just got it last week.

Lots more stuff captured which was interesting also.

I've got to get to work soon, I be back later this evening for any questions you may have.

What are we supposed to be looking at exactly?

Looks like a supernova, but it probably isn't
, I guess its just an artifact caused by the camera... interesting nonetheless!

I think that is the OP's question. What are they. He said he didn't see them when he took the photo, but then he would have just been snapping a pic of night I dunno. NVM

well the colored parts look light a light shinned on a stucko wall. Im thining this is some kind of double exposure or one immage put ontop of another, or it could be a strange light leak. At the bottom it says
What does the rest of it say?

Nice detective work. That makes me say the photo is debunked. Good call zaiger.

Nice try! Too bad you lie!

This pic is from my camera. proof? No problem.

Here is the orig. cropped because its too big to post.

Check the exif.

Notice that the pic contains iso noise. The first posted was edited using Neat Image demo which is commonly used to remove iso noise.

You have a good imagination.

Strange that your original version of the pic doesnt have any stars in it, but the one you used in the OP did. And the colored "lights" are different too.

All I can say to you is this. I took the pic with my camera.

Right away you jumped on a bandwagon because a person stated that he detected something about the filename stamp. Now your calling me out for stars on the enhanced image. Its no wonder people have been leaving this site lately, good people.
The filename is clipboard_filteredcrop3.jpg.

He was able to determine the bottom of the picture was from a 3d site on the web from that because clipboard_filteredcrop3 is the filename stamp at the bottom of the image.

One should be careful in how they approach people's images here.

Have at it, whatever turns your crank.

I know sod all about photography but I would guess that is what MarsorBust is referring to when he removed ISO noise. Am I right?

You know more than you think, you are correct.

You know, most people are not here to post bunk.

I have more important things in my life to do than crap up this board with lies.

I posted that picture in hopes somebody else would have seen similiar.

It might help to upload the photo to MATS - ATS Media
without any editing. This means, do not crop it. Do not rename it. Straight from the camera to MATS. This will help your case

As of right now, both of these images are edited and there is no original EXIF data. So again, please simply upload the image directly from your camera.

Thank you.

If I were to guess from first glance of the original and the edit:

1) yes the picture could have been taken with your camera, but there is no exif data in either photo as they stand now. I want to know both the f-stop and the shutter speed(once I get those, you'll see why)

2) Even if it is taken with your camera, that does not mean you were outside. The original photo reminds me of taking a picture of a monitor with an image on the screen. That always show up dark and dirty.

I have done amateur astrophotography for 20 years, and unless you had the camera on a tripod with an autotracker, and a shutter speed of at least 1 minute, you would never get an image like that, since the primary is simply too small to gather that much light.

Are you sure you didn't just take that in your back yard too? ok just kidding........and waiting for the photo without any edits...........

Now that the original is posted, it looks to me like light glint off the outer lens of the camera.

Were there any cars around with their park and/or brake lights on?

I have tried twice to upload the original to atsmedia and I get an error about the file size is too big.

I know about fstop it was at F2.80 if I recall correctly.
Also moderator keep in mind when asking for exif files on pics, you could inadvertly expose both serial number and identity of the ower.

My Canon dslr carries that info in all exifs.
Please tell me how to up the file (orig) and I will.

I even compressed the file which in this case, wouldn't stand because you want it from the camera. The upload wouldn't work even compressed to 40 per cent.

Here is the exif info, while I try to figure out how to get the original file uploaded.

Better still moderator, I'll email it to you if you wish to provide me with the info.

No cars, a few pole lights, thats all I recall.

It could be a glint, or something else?

I don't think glint because of the surrounding dark patches which to me look as though they are part of the anomally.

The things were about 30 degrees high and pointed close to north.

The camera lens is an ed lens.
