Since I was shooting 20-second exposures at ISO 3200, there was plenty of opportunity for the meteor's short life span to be captured. I was just lucky, however, that it didn't perform its burnout while my camera was taking a 5-second breather between shots. My intent that night was to capture the elusive Milky Way. Not only did I get the best shots ever of the MW and its bright core, but to capture it and a meteor in one shot?....Serendipity.
Tick that box on my bucket list.
