About this observation

Time of observation
14/12/2019 - 05:54
Geminid meteor
Observing location
Chelmsford, UK
Sony A7s + 85mm, f/1.2 lens
16 x 1/25s

It stopped raining and cleared up around 1am and my cameras picked up quite a few Geminids despite the bright, nearly full Moon being in Gemini. This is a stack of video frames of one event picked up at 05:54. The sky is very bright but in the video you can just about see the green emission from the train. A compilation of events from my B&W wide-angle cameras are here (NW cam) and here (SE cam). The forecast for here looks like it might clear again tomorrow morning so might get some more good captures then.
