Orionid Meteor Shower

This is a crop of my best shot of the Orionid Meteor series. The big red star is Betelgeuse from the Orion Constellation. The meteor trail was short but bright.

View large to better appreciate the meteor.

You can see two meteor trails streaking close to Orion in the full photograph which is posted to the comment section. If you click on that photograph you will see I have labelled some of the celestial objects. Both of these look better if you view on black.
