Taken using a simple camera-on-tripod technique, a Canon 700D DSLR with EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens set to 18MM at f/4, and a 30 second exposure at ISO 400.
It was moving to the west quite rapidly at this time, resulting in a 'smoothing' of it's color over the course of the 30 second exposure.
