Description
View of a Leonid Meteor taken just as a piece broke off and started to flare up. The main piece went through and the smaller piece made two revolutions around the main meteor. The photograph has not been enhanced and the colors are as it was photographed. I shot over 400 photos and only this photo captured a meteor. This shot is zoomed in to only show the detail.
