Huge Geminid fireball at 4:09 am over Tucson AZ

The fisheye view shows the fireball emerges from the Geminid radiant- see www.flickr.com/gp/eliot_photos/77i7q4 zooming past Orion

 

Amazing night- many meteors captured including quite a few bright ones- this one being the best by far. A photo of my lifetime.

 

Many bright meteors captured with the all sky ccd movie of the night sky that will be culled out of the dslr camera collections. See link for night's movie.
