Pic taken on 5th October from "Serra del Montsec" (Lleida, Spain) during the Draconids meteor shower. The trail of a meteor is crossing nearby the Milky Way field.

Montsec is a Starlight Destination and Reserve, and it has one of the most clean skies of South Europe.

Wow, pretty good photo of the parahelic circle. I was going to ask what the antisolar diffuse arcs are called but when I looked up the word antisolar to ensure I was using the correct word to ask my question with I found the answer. The diffuse arcs are very clear!
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
