So, since I got home pretty late Sunday night (more like early Monday morning), I took a short 30 minute nap, then went to the roof to take a pic of this -7 IR Flare. Remember, this is from Alexandria... inside the Beltway... lots of light pollution... and processed in PS7, hence the metallic look. Jupiter is the bright object off to the right, the flare is what looks like a shooting star. From my perspective, this was a very slow moving flare, so the exposure ended up a bit longer and the stars had time to trail.
Here's an 'unprocessed' version to be fair...
