Total cloud cover was forecast. Outlook seemed better in SE England so at midnight I started driving SE in search of a clearer sky.  Found them at Cobham Services 79 miles later.  Sky deteriorated quickly, intermittent views,  I was taking a sequence of images but clouds intervened about 30 sec before flash.  This is at 5.08, 2 sec exposure with 6D using ETX125, the star on the right that has just been revealed by the moon is 7th magnitude HD 67150.
