Disappointing Camelopardalis meteor shower
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Rented a car to drive away from the city lights and find some dark skies but the meteor shower I was hoping for never happened. We still saw a few meteors and I managed to catch some of them thanks to a fish eye lens. Can you see the strike of light left by this Camelopardalis meteor next to the big dipper? Despite some suboptimal skies (light pollution and a thin layer of high altitude clouds), we can also see the milky way rising on the horizon.
