One of a handful of sequences I took between Christmas and New Year's in 2011 on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The meteor flashes into existence at 0:04 (anything else you saw flash across the sky was an airplane). It burned up in the atmosphere about 50-60 miles up. The smoke train residual from the meteor lasted over 5 minutes, slowly dissipated by upper atmosphere winds.

Details: No dolly (due to travel logistics from the trip), just a tripod. Nikon D7000, ISO 6400, f/3.5, 18mm lens, 25 second exposures with 5 second delay between.

No music track with this 13 second time lapse sequence. After I get a few more sequences from there I'll put together a good and proper TL video. :-)

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
