One of the few meteor streaks I was able to capture on camera during Saturday’s Geminid meteor shower. With the dozens that I was able to see with my own eyes, I found out how NOT so easy it was to actually capture one on camera! With 3 hours of continually shooting at 20-30 seconds exposures, I think I was able to actually get only 4 to 5 of these streaks through the camera eye, and never more than a single one each time, even though there were several moments where I saw 2 or more passing just seconds apart!
