Orion the Hunter shot from a jet at 39,000 feet

I managed to shoot this photo from an airplane (AB1000) during a trip to the polar lights north of Iceland from/to Cologne.

The air was very calm in 39.000 feet so I used 4 sec at ISO 12.800 on my Canon EOS 550D (Wallimex 24mm, f/1.4).

The reflections of Orion the Hunter in the airplane's wing were even visible with the naked eye.
