It's a little tough to see at the upload size, but this was the first time I ever shot meteor trails and saw the rainbow effect. Last night (this morning), every one of the bright meteors had the rainbow - really awesome. My husband went to an astronomy club meeting tonight, and a few of the members suggested I send the photo to you, so that's what I'm doing. :) Thanks for your time and potential interest.
