While looking for 46P in a 85% Moon light, I happen to catch this short little meteor. I was using my 85 mm Rokinon Lens and shooting at 30 seconds to trail the stars to see if I could find 46P. So here is a short little meteor from my Canon Rebel T7i, f/2.8, ISO 800, Cropped of course.

Thanks for the input on the "other" posting.
