And there were a predictable number of calls of ‘Photoshop!’ and ‘Fake!’ from many people all over the Interwebs. We knew it wasn’t faked but who takes our word for anything? Anyway, as you would expect from Red Bull, they filmed the entire photoshoot and they’ve put the final edit on their website here along with a description of how it was done.

So you see, it was real. All it takes is a very long lens, a remote flash unit, an extremely rare astronomical event… oh, and the shutter skills of a top pro photographer.
