Pretty much all over the place. You just have to keep looking. They originate from the star formation 'Proteus' (Maybe have made that up..)

Who the hell is Patrick.

I didn't get a pic unfortunately. I only just figured out that I can do shutters for as long as I want in Bulb mode! I was trying it in 30 second brackets.

I'm'a try some star trail pics on the next clear night
