“Once upon a time” video recordings when meteor explodes in night sky above Clun Castle

An astrophotographer has captured “once in a lifetime” moment a meteor exploded before it was disintegrated in the night sky in Shorpshire.

The scene, recorded a few times on the camera, was captured during an Orionid meteor shower.

Orionid meteors occur every autumn when the earth passes through the stream of junk left by Halley’s Comet.

Landscape photographer Nick Jackson had gone to Clun Castle in Shropshire to shoot the building from the 13th century in front of the night sky to make a “star stage”.

But halfway through the shot, Nick saw the meteor light over the sky behind the castle.

He said, “I thought immediately,” I hope it was caught in the frame. “It’s very rare to see a big meteor. Because I was shooting the star wall, I could not check the pictures immediately.”

When he came home and reviewed his pictures, he realized he had caught the moment.

The 44-year-old said, “It was a great fortune to just shoot the series of pictures when it happened. With such things, you must be in the right place at the right time.”

A series of 30 pictures made to a video shows the meteor flight into the center of the frame and explodes in a penetrating flash of light.

Since a circular cloud of litter spreads into the star-light sky, two meteors can be seen as striking from different directions. [19659136] The scene , of which much would be invisible to the human eye, evolved over about four minutes.

Nick then combined the images for four seconds of the movie.

He said, “To the naked eye, it’s over in a flash . You only see a light beam and a light ping and then it’s gone. But the camera captures all the details in the aftermath. “

Nick added:” There are very few. I posted it on Facebook on some astronomical groups and it just blew up over the weekend. People said, “You are a happy guy, once in a lifetime.” “

Support frank thinking journalism and subscribe to Independent Minds images out there that have taken this before.

Nick used a full-frame Nikon d570 camera with a 24mm f1.4 lens to postpone the scene.

He said, “The reason the photographers go out in the middle of the night and stand in freezing cold is that we are obsessed with the beauty of the night sky, its peace and tranquility. And when you see such a thing, it’s just incredible inspirational. “
