East Point Lighthouse Star Trails / Meteors

This shot was taken in the morning hours of January 4th, 2012 during the Quadrantid Meteor shower at the East Point Lighthouse in Maurice River, NJ. The temperature ranged from a cool 15 degrees up to a warm 18 before factoring in an even colder wind. The lighter blue on the right side of the frame is the pre-twilight light as the last frame was taken approximately an hour before sunrise.

This shot was featured on the NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day site - apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120108.html
