    I am assuming that we are talking about the squiggly line seen also in the
    green inset in the image that comes up at the URL listed above.
    
    When I look at that image, I see what I interpret as a piece of dust on a
    negative at the time that it was printed. That would account for its light
    color in the positive image---the image showing what looks like a light
    polluted sky. There were also some pieces of dust on the film at the time
    the original image was made. They appear dark.
    
    Best wishes,
