Meteor shower above Amsterdam

Some things just look better Large and on BLACK…… Enjoy!!!

I went out hunting again and this time I’ve caught a rare event. I was out capturing the stars when al of a sudden a meteor appeared over head. I’ve seen this happening al the time but I’ve never managed to capture one. I’m very happy with the result. There where more shooting stars that night but only one is bright enough.

Technique:
30 sec exposure
120 shots (1 hour in total)
f/4.0
ISO 500
17 mm
White balance mode: Tungsten

Software:
stratrail

A meteor shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate from one point in the night sky. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth's atmosphere at extremely high speed on parallel trajectories. Most are smaller than a grain of sand, so almost all meteoroids disintegrate and never hit the Earth's surface. Fragments which do contact Earth's surface are called meteorites.
