An Iridium flare or glint seen over Colchester, Essex, magnitude -6.5. Another faint straight line, top left, is probably another satellite. The movement in the stars (caused by the rotation of the Earth), clouds and leaves is because this was a long, 30-second exposure. The ambient glow is from house and street lighting, and from the full Moon off to the right.
