East Point Lighthouse Star Trails / Meteors

This shot was taken in the morning hours of January 4th, 2012 during the Quandrantid Meteor shower. The lighter blue on the right side of the frame is from the start of twilight as the last exposure for this was taken about an hour before sunrise. The last shot I posted of the single meteor was used during a weather segment on New Jersey News 12 last night.
