Meteor before Galaxy

What's that green streak in front of the Andromeda galaxy? A meteor. While photographing the Andromeda galaxy in 2016, near the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, a sand-sized rock from deep space crossed right in front of our Milky Way Galaxy's far-distant companion. The small meteor took only a fraction of a second to pass through this 10-degree field. The meteor flared several times while braking violently upon entering Earth's atmosphere. The green color was created, at least in part, by the meteor's gas glowing as it vaporized. Although the exposure was timed to catch a Perseids meteor, the orientation of the imaged streak seems a better match to a meteor from the Southern Delta Aquariids, a meteor shower that peaked a few weeks earlier. Not coincidentally, the Perseid Meteor Shower peaks again tonight.

雨夜,不眠的雨夜
任思绪喧嚣

FEI的精神病咖啡馆:

生在冬天的人,

喜欢薄荷一样的空气,

让所有的生命都会变得清醒;


有人说冬季是结束,

但也是所有生命迎来新生的等待,

做好一切的准备;


这个冬天刚刚来到,

阳光透过窗户每天增加的霜,

会让我看到五彩斑斓的色彩,

像白天出现了极光,白虹贯日。
