Southern Maine Meteor Show
Thanks Patrick -- another great photo! After a rain soaking earlier, Southern Maine had clear skies and relatively balmy temperatures (about 38 degrees F) when I awoke around 2AM to view the meteor shower.
Spectacular! I was outside for about an hour and saw probably 30 meteors shooting out from all directions. One seemed to streak down to the ocean, maybe that was the one in your photo!
There was also the intermittent glow of a distant lightning storm moving off the coast towards the Northeast. During the time I was outside, the warm front exited, the temperature dropped several degrees and a light wind picked up bringing a chill in from the West.
It was definitely worth getting out of bed early, really an enchanting experience, and I feel very fortunate to have had clear skies for this!
