Meteor trail and the Milky Way. September 21, 2012.

This photo shows the trail of an enduring meteor. Image was captured on September 21st, 2012 at around midnight. The greenish meteor crossed the sky while I photographed the Milky Way. At about the same time a spectacular meteor was seen over Central-Europe and the UK/Ireland. The meteor observed on the image above is not the same. But, occured in the same direction at the same time.
