RemarksThis was a stroke of luck for me. I was out shooting a few test shots to see if they were going to pick up the possible auroras this evening. I just happened to be taking a 15 second shot (24mm lens at f/1.8 ISO 1250 Nikon D750 Camera) and the meteor streaked through the frame perfectly centered but fairly low on my Northeastern Horizon. I was also looking right at it when it happened which is a first for me because all my other meteor reports were taken with an automated meteor surveillance camera and not witnessed by myself in person. The colors of this meteor were incredible going from white to purple to green. I have not seen any auroras yet but this was enough for me. My backyard amateur roll-off-roof observatory can be seen in the foreground of the shot. That's a 20" Obsession Telescope aimed at the sky. The fall colors in the trees lit up by the surrounding street lights added to the amazing colors of the meteor. WOW!!!!!!!!!!
