    More Camelopardalids Meteor Shower Over Craggy Gardens


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Hvward says despite all the disappointment surrounding the Camelopardalids meteor shower, he says he actually enjoyed staying out to watch for it from Craggy Gardens, North Carolina, on May 24. 'Honestly, it was very interesting to me! I didn't catch the two largest ones that I saw unfortunately, but the sky was beautiful with the Milky Way Galaxy in the background,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    A few more long exposures from the Camelopardalids meteor shower. A star formation and another showing the International Space Station passing by. The other is a long exposure of the Milky Way Galaxy that happened to catch a meteor streaking by all over Craggy Pinnacle's peak. Temperatures were in the high 30's to low 40's with a stiff Northwest wind but the conditions were worth it.
