Camelopardalids Meteor Shower not such a dud
Many looked up to the sky on the night of May 23, 2014 hoping to see a sky full of meteors. And many were disappointed. But the majority of those with eyes aimed at the stars, were searching for what we all have come to know as a meteor, something shooting across the sky leaving a gorgeous light trail behind it. What they might not have seen were the meteors that simply burned up as soon as they entered the atmosphere and left no trail of light at all. I refer to those as little 'blips' in the night sky. These little blips produced some pretty gorgeous colors and I was able to capture quite a few of them in my time lapse photo taken from atop Table Mountain in Ellensburg, WA.
