Jean-Luc Dighaye

The show started at 03:07 with a pseudo-Orionid crossing M42 (28/2.8, 10s, ISO 6400).

Then, two look-alike meteors were recorded at 03:11 and 03:14 (two pictures side by side, covering the same field)

Venus rose and was imaged at 03:25. Saturn and Gemini can be seen too.
(20/2.8, 10s, ISO 3200).

Eventually, a green meteor was recorded at 03:28 (same settings). The colour reminds of this year's Perseids.
