I know this reply is a bit late but bare with me. I live in the UK and was out on the 10th August taking long exposure photos of the Persied meteor shower, and to be fair I got a few decent photo's.

After an hour or so, I noticed a very bright light which was moving very slowly east to south. I was able to take a photo of this strange light (albeit 20 second exposure). What made this incident strange was the fact of how slowly it moved and how luminous it was. It eventually went from a bright orange glow to completely black within a second.

I don't know how similar this is to your experience?!? But, you're more than welcome to the photo.

I was out Thursday 8/11 at 4:30 am. I was enjoying the meteor shower just before dawn when they said it would be the best viewing time. I kept seeing stars appear, grow brighter then disappear. Three times it occurred, separately not repeated flashes, south east direction. I thought maybe a straight on shot was happening, but I have never seen that before. So glad you posted. I joined just so I could find others who saw this as well . I don't feel so alone!

I do happen to have photographic evidence of this phenomenon. I was outside Thursday morning to photograph the meteor shower. My setup was as follows:

Nikon D7200
18mm lens
ISO 3200
25 second exposures at a 45 second interval
Total 244 exposures

When I was quickly going through them on my camera I noticed these random 'stars' that seem to appear for one frame and then disappear. To be honest I didn't think anything of them until I started reading this thread. I want to say I saw about ten of them over the almost two hour period. I didn't see them as they were happening. It wasn't until I reviewed my photos did I see them. Give me a couple of days and I'll try to make a time lapsed video. Can anyone suggest a good, free program for doing that?

Been running a sky camera for the last 3 year got a 2 TeraB drive almost full
Have seen 100' s of these I just ease them most time because I'm looking for Meteor
Will go back to 2014 and 2015 and see if I still have some, Im at work now so will be later on today
