Meteor over Mammoth

Early Sunday morning, October 18, I caught a very rare sight on camera. During a time lapse shot (while I was sleeping) a meteor exploded in the night sky, thankfully within the frame of my 14mm wide lens. The light was very blue-green and bright enough that it lit up the entire landscape and far exceeded the range of my sensor at the point of explosion. It is a pretty rare sight, and one I was even more lucky to capture with a camera.
