Fireball! A close meteor burns out really close!
My Luckiest Shot! I was up north in a nice dark spot in North east Minnesota. i found some old burned trees from a wild fire many years ago, and decided to do some silhouettes with the starry sky, and there was some aurora light on the horizon too. i took various shots at different angles, and was happy with them, but decided to try a few more. I was right in the middle of a 25 second exposure, when this very bright meteor dropped in! It was bright blue green,and so close I could hear it! It was so bright i thought it would just blow out the whole frame, but luckily it was moving too fast to do that. it looks like it was going through the trees, the light just spilled out over the branches in the brightest parts. If it was a painting, that is right were I would have put it! I used light room to brighten the sky a little, and the stars, clarity, and some vibrance, cropped a little off the bottom and right side. I did nothing to change the meteor, it looks the same as on my raw file. Canon 6D, Rokinon 14mm, f2.8 25 seconds 6400 iso october 2, 2016 1:40 am, nearest Town Isabella Minnesota
