This is the sky from the annual Meteor Camp in August. Do you find the perseid meteor? It shows up quite green, as the most perseids. Green are also the airglow structures covering much of the sky. The light of the meteors path and the airglow have the same wavelength and origin from atmospheric oxygen. The reddish skyglow at the horizon is manmade light pollution from the labelled cities.
