Time lapse video of a Geminid fireball and its persistent train (looks like a brownish "puff" right behind the meteor). To see it better, go to the settings below and make sure that HD is selected! The real time sequence is 4.5 minutes (the meteor lasted about 1 second, and the glowing train lingered for much longer).
Canon 5D, Rokinon 24mm f.1.4 lens (set at f2.0)
Morning of December 14, 2017
This is a composite image of the Geminids meteor shower taken with my Canon 6D and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f2.8. I took hundreds of exposures over the night, all while tracking these stars. Then I picked all the shots with meteors in them and digitally added them together into Photoshop to create this image... a near "all night" capture of 74 Geminids. This is a really wide view, covering most of the entire sky. The Milky Way is visible across several constellations... including Orion, Taurus and Perseus. All the meteors seem to radiate from a point in Gemini, an effect due to perspective. Those tiny meteors near the radiant point are ones seen coming nearly "head on" to the camera.

This ia another composite of the Geminids taken with my Canon 6D and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f2.8. Late at night, with Gemini crossing the zenith, and meteors seen "falling" straight down in every direction. This image contains 49 Geminids, digitally stacked in Photoshop. Taken on the morning of December 14 2017.
What is that down on the ground?! Alien? Christmas Tree? No, it's Shane who just happened to stand out there with his camera, taking pictures. This is one of those unplanned shots, as I had no idea he was going to stand there and be lit up perfectly with his head lamp. It turns out that I like the result
