"Sailing Through The Sky"

July 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The Jersey shore has always been my regular place during the night. I always find time to go see trillion little lights above me. Every time I am there, seeing a meteor falling from the heavens is ordinary to me but this one is the nearest that I’ve seen. It’s a ball of unearthly white light and a long shining tail.

Although it lasted for a few seconds before it vanishes in the deep Atlantic Ocean, this has been an awesome experience that I will surely hold dearly.

It is quite challenging to capture the meteors that appear in the sky but with constant observation I have a arrangement in mind. Using tripod to stabilize the camera, I then positioned it facing the north-eastern part of the sky to get higher chances to capture the falling meteor. In addition, I used intervalometer to get series of shots.

While the shots started rolling for at least an hour I comfortably lay down on the warm sand and enjoyed watching the twinkling stars.
