Comet Holmes from downtown Bucharest. Light pollution gives the orange-redish tint of the black sky, and although the image is heavily processed to make it closer to the real sky colors, the urban light pollution takes its toll. Too bad. We all have to do something about this, it's our money wasted on lighting up the sky... Clear skies to all.
