Sorry, not astronomicaly significant but an interesting combination.  I was just going to bed when I noticed the lightning ~50 miles away in the NE.  It was over mainland Italy.  Set up camera on apartment balcony and took pictures for next 50 minutes.  Stacked in StarStax and processed in Pixinsight & Faststone.
