Set the timer on my camera and ran into this shot so we could get a nice pic of the 3 of us with Jupiter, Orion and Taurus.
A green meteor flew across the sky but we had to continue to stay still as it was a long-exposure shot. As soon as the camera I heard the camera click, I ran down to see if I caught it in the shot. It’s hard to see, but it’s there on the left above Jupiter.
Taken from Wicklow Ireland.
Nice catch of that green meteor, Anthony. Thank you!
