Post Accidentally Filmed Shooting Star   Posted on: Fri Oct 07, 2011 3:10 pm
Hello everyone, first time poster long time viewer and space enthusiast. I was filming a object in my telescope off the lower western sky. I pulled my camera off the telescope to get a direct look at the object when a shooting star came across my lens. It was spectacular and beautiful all at the same time. So I wanted to share it.

Indeed very nice shooting star!

I guess that is one of those things you can only capture by accident :)

Nice color.

I wonder if it was a piece of Comet Elenin? Close approach was on Oct. 10 at 22 million miles. Close enough to sweep in some of its debris trail.

Very nice. Such fireballs are especially important to determine a connection between meteor impacts and close asteroid approaches.

Cool shot. A lot bigger than the ones I usually see.
