The last officially scheduled lens flare photo

Couldn't help it, I had to get a bit of lens flare on my last official full night at UKIRT. Pictures like this aren't normally ones I post because they show I don't always take care of cleaning my lenses, but the flare pattern is interesting - it looks as though I rolled a six!

It was an interesting night. Despite a clear sky, conditions were poor and above all, on the odd occasion I stepped outside to see the Perseid meteors, I think I saw only one in total. With 30 to 40-mph winds and temperatures well below freezing, I didn't stay outside long enough to see if there were any others!
