Okay, I've got another "what is it"?

I've got a SIM card I need to reformat so I might be able to still use it. It's got thousands of photos on it. Mostly wide field meteor watching.

Going through it, I found this from May of last year. 1 photo probably 6 sec length. This is normal view.

No idea. Possibly a meteorite?

Caught lots of metoers. Long streaks, some colored, some intensify as they burn up. Even some head on that were nothing but a brilliant flash.

Looks like short burst meteor, the trail is parallel to the stars in the field to me . The seemingly sharp angular edge could be end of the   exposure.

I don't know if could be an iridium flare, are they still running around the planet?
