The sky was perfectly clear last night here in Gila, New Mexico. The meteors rained down continuously all night. Many bright fireballs were interspersed with smaller meteors. The rate of meteors kept us from thinking about the cold. I used two cameras. One was tracking on Orion and Gemini with a 24mm lens. All the frames with meteors were layered into this composite. I also had a camera pointing west with a 14mm wide angle lens. All of the frames with meteors were then layered into a single composite.
As the evening wore on, it became apparent that the sky was changing. Upon review, I realized that I had captured a very bright green skyglow that began towards midnight which persisted into the early hours.
