What is this?

Post by chiefdeck » Sun Jun 23, 2019 10:43 pm

Can anybody tell me what the two brightest streaks that look like they are coming from Saturn and Jupiter are? There are also numerous other fainter streaks. Images taken before and after show no streaks. I have captured numerous meteors before so I am kinda flummoxed.

Looks to me like the camera shifted near the beginning or end of the exposure. Not enough to be apparent in most of the image, but the planets and a few bright stars show the streak and exposed endpoints.
