Taurid meteor over Atlantic coast
This past weekend was one of the (several) predicted peaks of the South Taurid meteor shower, which runs for many weeks each autumn. Jeff Berkes took advantage of that fact to capture the photo above. He wrote:
Clear skies over Assateague Island National Seashore [a long barrier island off the coast of Maryland and Virgini, known for its Atlantic beaches] this weekend.
We got some excellent results, and at least a handful of fireballs!
While I was catching some sleep early Saturday morning, my camera caught this Taurid meteor around 2:30 a.m.
Thank you, Jeff!
