What a fantastic accident, especially the way the star trails mimic the vert ramp.

what a happy accident, I accidentally double exposed a roll, but most of the shots came out confusing if visible at all.

Take a box. Put a tiny hole in the middle of a side. Put photopaper inside the box at the back.

There are better instructions if you can Google them.
