I was very
fortunate to get this photograph. I had just set up to commence
a series of time-lapse images of the sky. Seconds after
beginning the first exposure, this meteor flashed directly
across the field of view, flaring up brilliantly twice as it
went along. I also later noticed the faint red auroral streak,
so faint it was invisible to the naked eye.
this with a fisheye lens kindly given to me by a good friend of
mine. Also visible are the constellations Taurus, Auriga, and
Perseus, plus the planet Jupiter glaring in the upper right. The
sky's nasty yellowish color results from local light pollution.
