Meteor #1
While shooting the star trail I was lucky enough to capture a few meteors, this is the best one. My camera was pointed north so I don’t know if this one is from the Northern Taurids, Southern Taurids, Andromedids, or Orionids since all are “active” at this time. Any thoughts out there? Maybe this is just Rouge 1 (see who gets that pun since this image came from my last post).
