    I managed to photograph one of the Aurigid meteors this morning. Here is a small version of the photograph. I observed 4 meteors between the hours of 4:30am PDT to 5:00am PDT.

    It's so exciting knowing I'm one of the first to ever photograph this! I'm sure there are better than mine, but I'm all atwitter over it! Whooo hoooo!!!
    Taken from Belfair, WA.

    Wow, congratulations!
    I can imagine you feel extra special accomplishing something like that.
    And it is a nice photo aswell, the meteor is very clear and looks beautiful!

    Well captured - we had too much light pollution - the sodium street lighting gives everything a pink glow. We had a good view in the UK on a moonless night, one of the best for many years. One seen about every 45-60 seconds at one time.

    that's really cool a good shot, backed up by the memory of a special event and one you'll never forget.

    "I'm one of the first humans to photograph this!!!"

    And how many non-human species photographed it? Sorry, it just struck me as humorous. Kidding aside, congrats, great shot and timing.
