Surely, a show that will remain in my memory, a week ago, on November 7th. Between fast moving clouds, rain showers which lasted no more than two or three minutes, this fantastic moonbow appeared, when the almost Full Moon managed to break the clouds. On the right, a magnificent aurora borealis, fighting with a portion of starry sky in which we can easily recognize the stellar 'summer triangle', almost at its setting.
