Eta Aquarid over Mount Bromo

Cool short video of an early morning Eta Aquarid meteor over Mount Bromo in Indonesia, by Justin Ng. Take a few seconds and enjoy!

Justin Ng shot this video on May 6, 2017 while on an astrophotography tour to Mount Bromo, an active volcano in East Java, Indonesia. Justin said:

I captured this Eta Aquarid meteor at around 4:16 a.m. It left behind a red smoke trail that lasted several minutes before sunrise. The Small Magellanic Cloud is also visible just above the horizon on the left.

Thanks for sharing it with us Justin!
