Camelopardalids Meteor Shower

Camelopardalids Meteor Shower Composite

This all-night composite shows how poor this meteor shower turned out to be. The two bright meteors at the top, however, were visually very nice -- slow and bright, with a yellow-green color. Of course Murphy's Law was in force, and one of those meteors happened to exit out of the camera's frame. A few more dim meteors are actually visible at the bottom of the frame. See the enlargement from this shot.
