Shooting astrophotography can be full of surprises, both positive and negative. Brett Abernethy experienced the good kind:
While he was chasing some aurora borealis, he stumbled upon a meteorite burning in the atmosphere. Luckily he had his shutter open.
“I shot it on a Canon 5D Mark III with a Zeiss 21mm 2.8 lens F4 for 49 seconds. On a tripod obviously. In post all I did was bump up the contrast and saturation a bit – which you have to do when shooting in RAW.”
