(Cosmic Melody)
Geminid Meteor Shower with the White Desert Arches, Egypt (13-14-15 Dec 2022)

She enjoyed the cosmic fireworks and the geminid meteor shower while playing the violin in the desert.

We travelled to the White Desert in Egypt for two nights, December 13–15, 2022, to observe and photograph the meteor shower. During those two nights, we saw more than 200 meteors, even with the moon in the sky. We took more than 1400 photos to document the meteors with a panorama of the Winter Milky Way and a panorama of the foreground taken from the Aqabat Area inside the White Desert.
