That's two nights I have completely forgotten about this, no doubt I'll hit the hat trick. I've forgotten what memory is!

Saw it tonight! Quite remarkable, when you think about it. It's all too easy to take this awesome technology for granted, these days.

Out of focus, over-saturated and just started going behind some cloud but its the best one I got, it moves too fast to make life easy.

What do you see in my second attempt with a very shaky hand and four second exposure.

I see a cigarette burning in a darkened room.

I'm glad it wasn't just me, interpreting the image in a certain way - reminded me of what tended to be seen around a lot on walls in ancient Rome! This could be regarded as the ultimate flying phallus...

As for the second shot it reminds me of what we usd to do a lot when I was a child - NO, not smoke cigarettes in darkened rooms! 'Taking a line for a walk' was very popular; then you'd try to make something decorative from whatever squiggles appeared - colour in the sections, create a wacky animal etc. If we're locked down for much longer I'll be trying it myself with the felt tips!
