Nikon D7000 digital camera, 8mm fish eye lens, tripod.
I was attending an astronomy program at Faith Ranch when the entire landscape lit up! A huge, green fireball streaked across the sky, leaving us all stunned! I had my camera set up with the interval timer at the time, to take a series of 30 second exposures in order to create a star trail later on. I have the stacked star trail photo available, if you would like to see it. This photo is unedited, except for cropping.
