Since this picture was taken at night, it needed a long exposition time. The lights must be from a moving aircraft.
Anyone know why British Airways chose a tapeworm as their corporate logo? I'm just curious.

Speechlessly awestricken!!!
The star effect, unless it is a filter, usually results from a higher aperture number, smaller iris opening, meaning possible tripod and longer exposure than traditional hand holding allows for.. and light streaks from moving objects would be a telltale signature of this scenario. Not seeing much other movement in the frame though.
