During a regular photography session, a one-frame recording of M3, showed a bright (sporadic) meteor in the upper-left corner of the image.

Such events are very rare and with very low probability of occurrence (i.e. mostly luck..).

Note that there is a valid chance that the trail is a result of an artificial satellite reflecting sun light.
