Nice Long-trail Meteor
3

To all,

I saw this spectacular meteor visually. I must have said "WOW" three or four times as it continued to brighten and finally double flashed in the end. I was excited I captured it on the fish-eye lens, but disappointed the shutter closed midpoint on the camera with the 28mm lens. It would have been one of my best captures ever, but spoiled by a premature shutter closure. We need to find a way to tell the camera not to close the shutter while a phenomenal meteor is in progress. This may have been a Leonid earth-grazer, but it seemed too slow.  Who knows.  It was awesome nevertheless.
