Here is an example of that same technique, except the subject is moving through the frame. He gets up from his chair, picks up fire wood and throws it in the fire. His ghost is cast where there is enough light for the sensor to pick up. If he had not turned on his head lamp and done the same thing walking between the lens and the fire you wouldn't see any movement at all, just a campfire.

The reason these moonlight shots have the effect they do is for two reasons; a) The subject wasn't in the frame the whole time, allowing the light from the background to be picked up by the sensor. b) It was a very bright night, full moon at 6,000 feet, there is a lot of light being cast on the subject even if for only a few seconds...
