Last night I visited the Pinnacles near Cervantes to capture the annual Geminid meteor shower. It was the first time for me to try and capture this amazing event, and it surely didn't disappoint. The first visible meteors were visible from about 9pm, and were fairly infrequent. Though at around 1130pm-12am they really did start firing up right into the morning. A few large fireball meteors as well as countless others were visible. A truly incredible event that has certainly got me hooked and ignited a interest in astronomical photography.
Thanks to Grahame for your guidance and knowledge last night. I hope we can do it more often. Thanks mate.
This particular photo was taken at the break of dawn. The milky way was just spectacular and I did copy a shot Grahame got, but it was too good to miss.
More photo of the actual meteors coming soon.
