Image Details:

Took advantage of the early moonset to get in a few hours of meteor watching on Saturday morning at Devil's Courthouse on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Saw several bright aquarid meteors out of camera and then at 5:09 just as astronomical twilight was beginning this brilliant green meteor - which doesn't appear to be an aquarid based on it's direction.
