Big Guns

Normal Canon catches cannon firing with a small charge.  When the cannons are firing at close targets, they use small charges that are not bright, such as this one.  But when they are firing maybe 20 miles away, the fireball is massive compared to this.

The illumination drifts down under parachute and the gun can be seen moving as the soldier take a different aim.  Soldiers don’t call their rifles “guns,” but they call the cannons guns.  Rifles are called either “rifle,” “weapon,” “M4” (or whatever model it is),  but not “gun.”

The gun was moved while the shutter was open.  Notice with the modified camera that the stars are a little fuzzy.
