    • Geminid Meteor Shower 2012, Death Valley Sand Dunes (1080p)


      from Jeff Sullivan / Added

      Preview Video Clip from the Geminid Meteor Shower I spend many nights each year chasing meteor showers with my camera, catching that brief streak of light as bits of ice, dust and rock burn as they the earth's atmosphere. One of the best meteor showers of the year is the Geminid meteor shower in mid-December. I headed to Death Valley to take advantage of its annual average of only 1.9 inches of rain, greatly increasing the odds that I'd be able to shoot under clear skies. This 15 second video clip was produced from a sequence of images, each captured for 30 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 6400. So the total time period covered was nearly 2 hours. The high definition version I'm currently working on will show more of the more faint meteors once I'm finished producing the entire video.

        ***MORE DETAILS BELOW*** This is a timelapse of the geminid meteor shower that occurred December 13 and 14th 2012. It's about 500 still pictures over a course of 5 hours or so. The bluish haze is the winter milkyway while the quick streaks are the meteors. The long streaks are air planes.

          Put your earphones and watch in HD! Everyone can share this video, nevertheless remember to put my copyright: ©2012 Gianluca Lombardi/ESO (and also Devin's one for the music!) Please visit my sites: flickr.com/photos/gianlucalombardi/ wix.com/metropolis79/glphoto On 14, 15 and 16 December 2012 the Geminids meteor shower was amazingly visible from ESO Paranal Observatory. I have made a 2min 46sec timelapse of the event as seen from different locations on the telescopes platform collecting 27 hours of continuous shooting (almost 2400 pictures in total) leaving my Canon 5D Mark III (equipped with a Samyang 14mm f2.8) outside on the telescopes platform acquiring the frames while I was UT4 Night Astronomer. NOTES: - At 1:07 in the upper part of the scene, in the center, a huge meteor explodes leaving red smoke moving toward the right (East) - At 2:00 another huge meteor explodes above UT1 (just on the left of the dome) - At 2:15 you can see the ISS transiting above Paranal from the right toward the upper center (West-East) Soundtrack: "Infinite Ocean", Ghost (2011), The Devin Townsend Project, InsideOut Music Thanks Devin for your music! Hope you enjoy it.

                    This is one of four astrolapse sequences I shot during the peak night of the Geminid Meteor Shower in 2012 (Dec 13-14). This will ultimately be part of my West Virginia Nights II astrolapse video. In this particular sequence, which spans about 2-1/2 hours real time, there are no less than 30 Geminid meteors captured "on film". As well as three planes, a satellite, and a sporadic meteor (which you may or may not notice at 0:19 amongst the tree branches at the far lower right of the video; if you do note it, it'll be angled in a different direction than all the other meteors, which means it is not associated with the Geminid shower). The planes are pretty easy to pick out, they are streaks that travel across the sky. The satellite appears between 0:26 and 0:27 just to the left of the branches at the far right side of the screen and briefly travels diagonally up right before vanishing again. All the other streaks you see flash into view and disappear again are meteors. I slowed this video down to 15 frames/second so you have a better chance of catching the meteors when they appear. Note, I went through frame by frame (there are 430 shots for this video) and counted up 30 Geminid meteors. Many of them are faint, and you are unlikely to notice them as the video plays, but a fair number of them are moderately bright and brighter; those you'll see easily enough. :-) In real life I noticed the Geminids had basically two different types of meteors: quick, not overly bright, short meteors, and long, slow, burning meteors. Unfortunately, since meteors typically last a couple seconds or less, you cannot get a view of the slow burning ones as they flame across the sky. Just the light streak captured by the camera. One drawback to photographing a meteor shower to show to other folks. Meteors do not look like streaks in real life. The short quick ones that were bright enough for the camera detector to capture appear as relatively faint and short streaks. The slow, burning ones that coursed across the sky are the far more noticeable, bright ones. Given that this is pretty much winter time, and the leaves are all down, you can even catch a few amongst the trees at the bottom of the video, particularly toward the end. Good luck. :-) The extra bright star that travels down the left side of the video starting at about 0:10 is actually Jupiter (a quick, short Geminid meteor flashes past it at 0:18). The Pleiades star cluster precedes it. As you watch the video you'll notice a brightish start at the upper right not move the entire time. That would be Polaris, the North Star. Technicals: Nikon D7000, ISO 3200, 15 second exposures (with 5 second pause between shots*), f/2.8, 14mm Rokinon lens. No dolly or other camera-moving apparatus was used. * - during the first 5-10 minutes of this sequence I was standing behind the camera looking at the same patch of sky it covered and noticed that during the 5 second pause while the camera was writing the previous image to the disk, a meteor would fall in the field of view. Of course since the camera wasn't actually doing an exposure at that time, totally missed catching it. I saw this happen no less than 7 times in the first 5-10 minutes of shooting the 2-1/2 hour long sequence.
