Details:
Two possible Kappa Cygnid meteors photographed just before midnight on the 5th of August.

The first passed to the right of Corona Borealis and the second, the brighter of the two, through Cygnus to the left of Lyra.

The images have been brightness and contrast enhanced.

They were taken with a Nikon 5300 using a Tokina 11-16mm wide angle at 12mm, ISO 1600, 8 second exposures. Strong moonlight and late twilight affected the images.
