You read correct, this was a night shot. The bright bit is actually a full moon.
This was taken in Owhiro Bay, Wellington, back in my astro photography beginnings. Back then I had only one super-wide-angle lens, a pretty old one, made in Russia. It was actually pretty good, though the stars towards the corners are a bit distorted.
