Pretty impressive montage.

https://www.haldavisphotography.com/ took 4 hours worth of photos from the same spot and combined them to make this single picture featuring a bunch of the arrivals from this Sunday at EAA Airventure in Oshkosh.

That is the most congested airspace I've ever seen. ;D
It is amazing to listen to the controllers sequencing and assigning landing instructions at Oshkosh during prime times for arrivals. They have painted an orange and a green dot at different location and distances on the main runway. They don't use "N" numbers as call signs and instead call out plane colors and high wing or low wing and sometimes manufacturer. They will call out land on the numbers or green dot or orange dot so several planes can land on the same runway at the same time. They have rolled the grass to compact it along between the paved runways and taxiways and they have planes turn off the runway onto the grass to clear the runway as soon as possible so more can land. It is amazing to listen to and watch as Wittman becomes the busiest airport in the world during Oshkosh.
Here is a link to the live cams and it will show you how amazing the place is.

Looking at the foreground I would say it is a long exposure.

The payload was a rideshare mission placing another Earth-imaging satellite for BlackSky’s constellation, a satellite for a new maritime tracking constellation, and two United States Air Force research satellites into orbit.

Another one. Brendan at NZ Stormchasers took this photo of Rocket Lab's launch on Monday night from Castlepoint, 230km from their launch site in Mahia.
