Details:
On December 2 I was at 4 km from Targoviste city in a place where the light pollution is at a low level to the west part of the sky. I observed the possible activity of the new 66-Draconids meteor shower. The activity of this shower was not confirmed, but I saw a fantastic special airglow, green and red. It was as a storm on the western and northern part of the sky, very easy visible with the naked eye (not color detected). The storm was detected few minutes before 21:00 LT (19:00 UT) and persisted till after 02:00 LT (00:00 UT) on December 3. I saw many times airglow, especially in La Palma (Canary Islands), but this was very special: two colors (green and red) and with waves form.
