Details:
It felt great to finally photograph one of these Eta Aquarid meteors passing right in front of the Milky Way. These Aquarid meteors were colorful and kinda fast like the Perseids I witnessed last year.

I noticed that there were fewer meteors to the south of my location last night than there were in the past two nights, so I guess they have begun to taper off.
I used a full spectrum Canon T3 camera with an 18mm lens set to F/3.5 for 5 seconds and iso 6400. Taken on May 6, 2017 at 4:36am.
