parachute flare
A parachute flare lights up the sky during a New Year's Eve 2011 party on the beach of Scheveningen, the Netherlands. The scene was captured shortly after midnight from the terras of an appartment building. Werner POETS, who took the picture, remembers that the flare looked slightly smaller and better defined than it does in the picture, but that, despite the short distance (estimated at 30 m), both canister and parachute remained invisible.
