Here in Australia the constellation of Gemini is well and truly up by 1.15am so I braved the mosquitoes and all the festive Christmas lights on display to try and catch a few of them here at home.

After 3 hours all I caught was one, but one is better than none, maybe tomorrow morning I may have better luck…that is, if the weather holds out!

I also got a photo of the waning crescent Moon with Mars and Jupiter in the eastern sky before dawn with the puffy clouds being reflected in the water…the view was very serene, so I think all the pretty lights added to my picture after all :-)

Images were taken with a Canon 700D camera and an 18-55mm lens; the exposure for the meteor image was 15 second, ISO1600. The wide field image was also a 15 second exposure and ISO 200, lens set at 18mm.
