Fireball at Sandy Point, Maine
After a few months of planning our second astrophotography shoot of 2015, the frigid temperatures here in Maine didn’t stop us from going out to time-lapse the rise of the Milky Way over the Penobscot River next to the old pilings at Sandy Point Beach.
On the left side of this image a brilliant green fireball streaks down towards the horizon and leaves a bright reflection on the water.

Thanks, Mike and Sonia!
Bottom line: Two photographers – Mike Taylor and Sonia MacNeil of Mike Taylor Photo – caught a bright meteor, or fireball, from an icy beach in Maine.
