Hello everyone, this is my first real post on cloudynights after lurking for a few months. Here's an image of Neowise over Groningen, The Netherlands. There appears to be a meteor in two images, but I'm just not sure whether this isn't some artifact (what are the chances of having two images photobombed by a meteor in one night?). Is there any way to exclude alternative causes?

And here's my first attempt at stacking and some pp, so any and all advice will be much appreciated.

Does look like...whatever, likely not meteors.

Great photos - I've definitely seen a handful of early Perseids while out enjoying the comet.

Thanks a lot for the nice coments. With an aircraft I would expect flashing navigation lights and the streaks are not there in the frames directly before and after these.

True; however, these two separate streaks appear to be moving in the wrong direction, i.e., not emanating from Perseid radiant. Maybe sporadics? Or satellites?

Could be satellites or sporadic meteors, in any case: wonderful pictures, Hans. Groeten uit Friesland.
