Meteor Over Persia

A "shooting star" streaks the sky over ruins in Damghan—an ancient Iranian city 224 miles (360 kilometers) northeast of Tehran—early Tuesday during the peak of the 2011 Quadrantid meteor shower. This year the Quadrantids peak featured rates of more than a hundred meteors an hour.

Fiery Meteor

A Quadrantid meteor seems to zip near the horizon over Alberta, Canada, in the early hours of January 2—a day before the peak of the annual meteor shower.

Aurora Meteor

The green curtain of an aurora creates a veil over a Quadrantid meteor as seen from northeastern Norway on January 3.

A pretty good rap up. There are a couple of more shots at the source article. I just lost them all. I enjoy the stars in the background on the Firey one (2nd shot).. Look at all those stars!!! How beutiful.

Makes you realize how small one is....

I hadn't seen any of these shots previously. Sorry if you had. Otherwise. enjoy and comment.

I forgot to note.

Do any of our ATS members live in these areas the photos were taken.

If so, do you have you own pics you could post up here for us to view?

Let us know. Show us what you Got!

I really think ATS should host contest surrounding these Space events. I think it would be a hit on the site and on the public domain.
