Auroras & Atmospherics
LocationW of Rome Ga
EquipmentNikon Coolpix 4800 4mp w/8.3x Optical Zoom
DescriptionI spotted this on 12-09 @ 5:44pm, west of Rome Ga Agonizing over a site to view it, I was delayed for a few minutes. At first view it was very distinct, 5 min later was totally gone. You can see 6 dark streaks at ground level in line with the train which I think are debris strikes. In the largest shot, the front shows streaks that looks like debris ejection. I assume this was a Geminids but may have just been a stray. It appeared to explode over the Alabama line, I called a friend to see if he heard a sonic boom but he did not.
LocationHaleakala N.P. Maui,Hi.
EquipmentNikon f-4 camera, Kodak Kodachrome 64 film
DescriptionA Glory or Brocken Spectre appeared as I came up to the edge of the cloud filled crater of Haleakala crater at the 10,000 foot level. As I moved the whole scene undullated. The whole event lasted but a few fleeting moments as the sun set in the western Hawaiian sky.
