Image Details:

Bright Taurid through thin clouds, under moonlight.

The last few nights have been clear and I have been setting up my camera to take time lapse pictures in the hope of getting some Taurids. The crop is meager, but this seems to be a pretty good one, passing next to Orion. Notice Aldebaran, bright red star in the middle of the picture (not to be confused with Betelgeuse lower in the shot) and the Pleiades above. The Moon was rising from the lower left corner.
