Looks to me like they had a vehicle with the Lights left on, just off the side of the road, to use as a ground reference (plus Goldcraft spotting)?

I liked that alot, as being twilight, you can still see the nice cloud formations against the dark sky. Nice one.

Yep....car is off to side with headlights pointing straight down the landing approach. I also spotted as you mentioned ....mainly telling him how high he was and if he was gaining altitude are dropping(he has glo wires on the plane....we know the area well because we have flown in the daytime and at sunset often there. Pretty easy to navigate because there is a road on two sides and a neighborhood another one.

I think his camera is a KX191....its a very good low light/night cam.
