It's the first 2004 evening. The weather in contrasted. A few minutes before I left home, it was raining. Confident, I prepared my photographic stuff.
When I left, the sky was still partially cloudy, but a strong wind swept quickly the clouds, uncovered thither some nice starry holes.
When the flash occured, it began just above a cloud, through thin clouds.
With the fisheye lens, the trail left by the flash seems very short. In the upper left corner, the Gibbous Moon illuminate the clouds passing quickly. At the South-West horizon (in the lower right), the twilight sky is still yellow because of the Sun set since one hour.
