Earthshine and Meteors

I tried photographing some Perseid meteors, but didn’t have much luck this year. I did get some nice shots of the Moon, Jupiter, and Venus though.

-I took this one while a meteor flew down, from above Venus, but it didn’t show up. Maybe the shutter wasn’t open like I thought, or my ISO and shutter settings were not good enough given the 15 second exposure (to increase my chances of the shutter being open during a meteor).

I did see a nice bright green one, and it left a trail of green smoke in the sky which cleared after about two seconds.

I use a mini tripod, with bendy legs.
