    Camelopardalids Meteor Sprinkle


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tchoula stood outside Pierson, Florida, watching for the Camelopardalids meteor shower. After waiting for three hours, he jokingly renamed it a “meteor sprinkle.” He says there were no more meteors than there are any other night. But he’s hopefully about upcoming celestial events. ‘You never know when you might capture one,’ he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    I shot the sky centered on the Polaris (North Star) from approximately 1:45 – 3:45AM EST and this is the only frame I am certain shows a meteorite. I witnessed a couple (literally two) others, but the Camelopardalids meteor shower was just barely a sprinkle. This was shot from the eastern shoreline of Lake George (part of the St. John’s River) near Pierson, Florida.
