21p 20180814 mlgyebnar

I was capturing 21P in front of my house and just replaced the telephoto lens for a 50mm lens to have a wide angle view of the comet with its neighbourhood when this Perseid fireball blasted into the f.o.v. Its smoke remained visible for the naked eye for 2 minutes despite being under streetlights, and I could follow it on the photoes for 10 minutes. The time of the fireball: 00:25 UT 14-08-2018, it was cca -6 mag. bright.
