Just ran some  darks with the camera lens covered. Is it common to get as good a track as this?

I don't have as much experience as many others on here, but I've never seen anything like that on a dark.

I myself got a little squiggle taking darks in the bedroom tonight, but I’ve never seen one that large. Then again, I never inspect all of my darks.

Just be thankful you were chosen. How long has that been traveling just to impact your sensor?

I appreciate how special I must be that I was chosen. I do believe it's an unpolarized muon, and some more common low energy electrons above it and to the left. My personal cloud chamber substitute.
