  • Dear Shooting Stars,
Even though you shined quickly through the sky, you illuminated my life.
P.S. Thanks For The Wishes.

  • Shooting Stars and Meteor Showers ✨🧤🍷💥⭐️💫

Graceful, colorful and spectacular — maybe 
The Geminids are often described as "bright and intensely colored," and are typically plentiful, with as many as 120 meteors per hour for a single observer in the absence of moonlight, something that is all but out of reach this year.

And we can offer a solution to the moon problem — call it "damage control" — for the 2019 Geminids.

On Saturday evening, the moon will not rise until shortly after 7 p.m. local time. The radiant of the Geminid meteors (situated near the bright star Castor) will come above the northeast horizon just as evening twilight is ending, around 6 p.m. 
That short window of dark skies — from about 6 to 7 p.m. — will probably offer you the best chance this year of seeing a few bright Geminids flitting across the sky. Early Saturday evening, there is a fair chance of catching sight of some "Earth-grazing" meteors: long, bright shooting stars that streak overhead from a point near or just below the horizon.

Such meteors are so distinctive because they follow very long paths nearly parallel to our atmosphere. In this year's Geminids, look for meteors racing almost straight up from the northeast horizon to a point ending overhead.

  • A #Geminids meteor streaks to the right of #Orion early this morning as the #MeteorShower peaked. Clouds moved through south central Kansas at times, temporarily blocking the show, but overall was impressed with the show despite the moon being at 96%. #KSWX

3. Meditate. 
4. Walk barefoot.
5. Follow the moon. 
6. Understand what it means to be you.

  • The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer- perfect for star gazing! BLM-managed lands are some of the most remote areas in the nation, offering some incredible opportunities for star gazing or night sky photography- or both! Check out some of our tips for those interested in brushing up on their night sky photography skills with the link in our bio.

  • Look to the skies, Terraformers! The Geminid meteor shower began its peak late last night, and sightings will remain frequent through tonight, particularly  for those in the Northern Hemisphere. While the bright light of the nearly full moon will somewhat hinder this year's viewing, those observing clear skies may spot up to 30 meteors per hour!

  • A fireball lights up the sky of this April 2016 night in the Atacama Desert. I was totally unaware of this capture, hidden in a timelapse sequence of many frames. Recently my editing colleague @zidmani in Munich found it in the archive. What a surprise and how odd that I can’t remember seeing this meteor while working with the second camera. It should be as bright as the quarter moon for a moment. ⁣
⁣Currently the Earth is passing through the Leonid Meteor Shower stream but it’s not a major show this year. But on the night of Nov 21-22 a surprising meteor outburst is predicted for less than an hour near 4:50 UT on the 22nd, or just before midnight of the 21st in the US East Coast and just before morning break of the 22nd in West Europe. It may create hundreds of meteors. The prime areas are South America and  North America’s east coast, across Atlantic Ocean, West Europe and West Africa.

  • ☄️Tonight’s Alpha Monocerotid meteor shower, predicted to peak around 11:50pm ET (04:50 UTC), has the potential to generate a brief outburst of many meteors — but the intensity of meteor showers is notoriously hard to predict, and what you actually see will depend on many factors, including location, weather and more.

  • Fireball lights up the sky over Mt Kaçkar, Turkey 🌌
Atmosferimize giren bazı meteorlar diğerlerinden farklı olarak yanma eyleminden sonra bir patlama geçirip daha sonra yere ulaşır. Genel olarak Venüs’ten daha parlak görünüme ulaşan bu meteorlara fireball veya bolit denir. Daha önce hiç fotoğraflama imkanım olmamıştı ama Kaçkarlar Zirve’de yaptığım seri çekimde birini yakalamayı başarmışız. ☄️🌌 Exif: Sony A7s Samyang 24mm Iso 4000 f2.4 15sec
