Image Details:

A nice Leonid meteor captured from an overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway in western North Carolina, USA. WIth the bright moon I was shooting at only ISO400 which allowed for some nice color in both the meteor and the stars as they don't get overexposed. The bright moon helped illuminate the foreground as well.
