Meteor Over the Salton Sea

While processing (mostly removing airplane trails) from many frames I shot to produce star trails, I just discovered that I captured a meteor! I believe that this may be a Geminid. Check out the reflection!

Sorry about the graininess - this is a crop of a 15mm wide angle frame.

I shot this at the old abandoned Naval Station at the Salton Sea.

The conditions were perfect for nighttime photography - clear skies and almost no wind.

I shot MANY more photos at this location and will be processing and posting them over the next few days.
