Just a little update. The photo of the meteor which I shot over the Northern Bay in our little village of Penobscot, Maine, was published on the front page of the Ellsworth American newspaper yesterday. I was amazed to find it on the front page. :)

@ dkb, I did send it to spaceweather.com. They asked if they could send it to NASA with my name as the photographer.

Thanks for everyone's nice comments!

Enjoy taking photos in the area of Downeast Maine where I live near the shore with my husband and our dog, Drzl, who is one half greyhound and one half rhodesian ridgeback. I am not a professional, I just shoot what looks cool or interesting to me. Thanks for looking!
