Geminid Meteor Shower

Again out at the Torrance Barrens Dark Sky, Ontario, Canada and the Geminid meteor shower put on a brilliant display for everyone to see. I went out to the barrens around 7 pm to setup and get prepared for what was to come. Preparing for the clouds to break and I could still see Jupiter through the haze I setup knowing Gemini was rising to the east and setting in the west. I setup pointing up and in an east – southeasterly direction, getting the rise of Orion, the exit of the Pleiades “the Seven Sister/tiny dipper” and Jupiter. Once I had my camera, laptop, cables and power all ready I started to shoot. Once setup I met some great people who came out to the barrens to watch this display as well. I really enjoyed the display and would say at least 100:1 meteors where actually in frame. With a very wide radiant, the meteors where shooting all over the sky, some lasting well over several seconds. With my camera setup doing it’s thing and being in the dark sky, even the smallest meteors where quite visible. I hope you got to see the show, if not I hope you enjoy these pictures and the time lapse I have made.

This image on the top is a composite image of most of the meteors I captured in the Torrance Barrens Dark Sky.  There are over 20 meteors in this image. How many can you count?
