From the photographer: "Setting up the camera for a new location, I decided to take a test shot to check the image composition because it was so dark that I could not see anything through the eyepiece. During this initial shot, a bright fireball showed up just below the Milky Way and on the left of the 1.5m Carlos Sanchez telescope. A second shooting star much fainter can be seen in the centre-top of the image. Luckily the composition and level of the image was right and the shot was good."
Technical details: Single-exposure, Canon 80D ISO 10000, Samyang 14mm f2.8 20 sec exposure.
