In my hometown on the weekend, I glanced out the window just before going to bed - clear. After all, it didn't help to suddenly grab the camera by the armpit and move to the yard. However, the arrival of the clouds did not have to wait long. With a few minutes of convulsions, a couple of visually orionide-like flights grabbed the cell.

Spending Friday night in a nice little frost. At first, I circled around the description looking for a place. After all, having your own backyard was the best option when you got home. About 45 minutes I looked at the sky and I think 3 orionids of fire were seen, one quite spectacular, but at that time there was no camera still shaking. One, after all, was saved.

In connection with the northern lights shooting, several star flights flew. At least one was left in the picture. Is this already an Orionide? The observation time is the same as during the Northern Lights observation. The one in the picture was at 9.27 pm.
