A “small” fragment of the tail of the Comet McNaught, seen after the middle of night. First I was thinking about the Zodiacal Light or maybe an Austral Aurora phenomena. In this picture, you can see: “alpha” and “beta” Centauri (The Pointers), and going to the diagonal - right, Triangulum Australe.
