Star Light, Star Bright by aFeinPhoto-com Star Light, Star Bright by aFeinPhoto-com
Managed to capture an enormous shooting star the other night while photographing. The thing shot 2/3rds of the way across the sky. Luckily I was already pointing in that direction and was able to get it. If you can imagine it extended all the way to the horizon. Yikes.

the long exposure brings out some of the subtle ones that our eyes cant see but yea...there are a lot of stars ;)

do you actually say "danke" in your dialect? i just wonder because it's not the first time i see you writing "danke", but it seems to be the only german word you write from time to time :P

Nice capture Aaron! Do you normally keep a large aperture when shooting the stars? Does it vary if you include a tree or some of the land in the picture? :)

The only problem with the shot is that if you hadnt told me it was a meteor I would have thought it was a plane. It's a shame that it doesnt have that flaring that meteors often do, but still a very rare shot. :)

Incredibly beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, did you use a specific exposure length or was this just an insanely lucky shot that you captured so much of it?

the meteor appeared off camera left and i had time to start the exposure so it should have been through the entire shot...exif is standard for star work.
