Wow! I kind of like this version better, though.

Nice pictures, Tony.

Curvy Meteor Trail

Parker Brown wrote:I just recently acquired my own telescope and camera and have been taking pictures and viewing the sky at every opportunity. On the morning of June 1 I was experimenting with some short and long exposures and managed to capture a meteor similar to the APOD June 2, 2010 photo of a 'Twisted Meteor Trail'. Attached is a copy of the image file in .JPG format with the meteor trail visible towards the upper left corner. Upon close inspection a second curvy trail is visible.
I've cropped the trail at the original size the image was sent; the entire image is below that, reduced greatly in size (18% of original) so it will look reasonable on the thread.

I like this, nice composition, strange plant, surreal.

I would like to know the story behind it.

The M13 globular and airplane trail is a lot of serendipitous fun. I, of course, note that the "white lights" of the airplane are redder than the overall color of the globular.

My second favorite of the pictures here must be the Yosemite image. The stark beauty of that image is almost otherworldly. Only the waterfall reveals that we are really on the Earth after all. Because the Earth is the only known planet where liquid water flows at the surface, certainly the only known planet where it flows in quantities sufficient to create a waterfall.

bystander, here is some info about Mr. Casado's image:
Juan Carlos Casado wrote:I send a new image obtained recently from the National Park of Teide (Tenerife, Canary Islands) over 2,000 meters. The image shows a blooming red tajinaste (a Tenerife endemic plant that can reach three meters in height) with the Milky Way. The waning moon appears over Gran Canaria island with a sea of clouds.
So the elevation there is high enough that he was above the cloudtops for that particular image.

Another of his images from Tenerife appears here.
