Had a quick play with my Fisheye while on Holiday in France tonight.
While photographing the stars I saw several bright flashes, this shot confirmed they wre due to distant lightning, and also caught one of the shooting stars

More likely an iridium flare, look it up

No reason it couldn't be a Perseid. I like the picture whether it's a meteor or a satellite.

Given that both it & the other similar streaks we saw all originated from the constellation of Perseus, during the build up to the Perseid storms maxima this Sunday. I think my ID is far more likely. Not all of the streak was recorded during the shot, but it managed better than most of the others we saw which inevitably seamed to be while the camera was recording its dark frame.
