EquipmentI used a Cannon 60Da camera on a Losmandy G-8 mount an 18mm Zeiss lens at F3.5 an ISO of 1000 and an exposure of 125 seconds was used.
DescriptionA lovely night here in the backwoods of Jadwin, Missouri, the sky is dark and clear with a little wind whispering through the pines. Barred owls hoot in the distance and it is comfortably warm. I set up a camera in hopes of catching a meteor before the Moon rises and distorts the clear view of outer space. Ursa Major catches my eye as "The Big Dipper" hangs upside down in the North and I decide to try my luck there. Meteors have come to me there before, so why not now? After a bit, I realize I have caught one, just below (or above) the bowl of the dipper! Pleased with my luck, I decide to call it a night.

DescriptionA strong display of airglow covering part of the sky with the Magellan Clouds visible. I was surprised to find such a strong display of airglow in a rural sky only 100km away from a very big city. Airglow patterns can occurr anywhere in the world and sometimes you get lucky.

DescriptionDouble rainbow is quite an interesting optical phenomenon in which the sunlight reflects twice inside the raindrops and produces a secondary rainbow outside the primary one. Due to the secondary reflection of light, the colors in the secondary rainbow appear inverted compared to primary rainbow.
