I just got back from Boone where we held our Mountain Astrophotography Workshop. Despite cloudy and rainy forecasts our group stuck it out and where richely rewarded with almost totally clear skies for several hours on Saturday night. We had a blast capturing the stars and playing with different compositions and light. Right at the end after everyone had packed up and was ready to head back to the hotel, I went back down to the lake to pack up my gear. I decided to grab one more frame just to make sure that I had focus.

Well as I watched the dark skies while the 25 seconds elapsed a massive green meteor streaked across the sky. At the time I really didn’t know what it was. It was bigger than anything I’d seen and it was so brilliantly green. It burned up quickly but I was juiced. Miraculously I caught it in my frame. Is that really a meteor?
