SOS - B52 light painted under the stars

Crash landed the B-52, signaling and waiting for help to arrive. Standard flashlight on top pointing out towards the stars, using a lantern insight to illuminate the cockpit. I’m not exactly sure what happened with the stars in the center of the frame. It was about 34 degrees out so we had some frost/fogging issues so I suspect my lens started fogging during this exposure causing the subtle flare on some of the stars. It’s just weird that it is all concentrated around the center. I thought it looked cool so I left it. And no its not comatic aberration (coma) which is an optical design imperfection in the lens that causes stars to appear to have tails, mostly noticeable in the corners of the frame when shooting wide open. Startrail shot coming soon, maybe next weekend.
