Details:
An Eta Aquarid fireball meteor with an impressive green tail streaks through the sky while I was capturing the reflections of the Milky Way and some trees in a local pond. I used an ISO setting of 4000 to collect as much light in the foreground reflections as possible. The orange hue on the horizon is light pollution in the light cloud cover.
