The light streak in the upper middle is a meteor. The flashing light to the right of Ypsilon Mountain is a plane. Both are major elements of interest. No need to clone out major elements. My philosophy is to present images without Photoshopping.

WOW! Absolutely stunning. Only distraction is the light in the bottom right above the mountains, but it's minor compared to the pure awesomeness in this image. 10 from me
