Yes, I caught a shooting star

While out taking some shots of the ISS over the Cork skies, I was very lucky to get this photo of a shooting star. That's two shots I've managed to get of shooting stars in the space of a week. Talk about lucky. The 2nd shooting star shot can be seen on the photoblog here.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Canon)
Camera Lens:
Focal Length: 16 mm
Exposure: 30 sec
Aperture: f/3.2
ISO: 1600














  • Without a doubt in my mind, this is the absolute best of your night sky shots. Wonderful, stunning and beautifully composed. A winner!

  • Nice one Shane. Some serious amount of stars and the shooting star is a real bonus.
