Explanation: On September 24, a late evening commercial flight from Singapore to Australia offered stratospheric views of the southern hemisphere's night sky, if you chose a window seat. In fact, a well-planned seating choice with a window facing toward the Milky Way allowed the set up of a sensitive digital camera on a tripod mount to record the galaxy's central bulge in a series of 10 second long exposures. By chance, one of the exposures caught this bright fireball meteor in the starry frame. Reflected along the wing of the A380 aircraft, the brilliant greenish streak is also internally reflected in the double layer window, producing a fainter parallel to the original meteor track. In the southern sky Jupiter is the bright source beneath the galactic bulge and seen next to a green beacon, just off the wing tip.
(the brilliant greenish streak is also internally reflected in the double layer window) I was wondering if there were two meteors; and then when I read the explanation; it all was clear It is also reflected in planes wing! Pretty lucky catch by the photographer!

Now, THAT has to be a single exposure picture! Doesn't it?
It wouldn't have to be. Given that there was a series of shots, they could be stacked to give a deeper Milky Way image while leaving the single meteor frame in the stack. But yes, this image is a single 10-second, ISO 3200 frame.
