Last year I shot a storm but didn’t want to post just another picture of lightning. Today I took the real shot of the lightning behind the tree branch and composited it on cracked paper, so you wouldn’t be sure what you were looking at.
The Geminid meteor shower was last night. But, I was tired and set the camera to take 4 shots instead of the 400 I wanted to take. The second photo had this one little meteor in the upper left. All in all a beautiful star filled night. Not bad for the light polluted skies near NYC.
Tiny meteor streak in upper left corner. Taken during the Geminid meteor shower on 2012-12-14.
