Geminid meteor
Observing location
Watec 902H2 Ultimate video camera
12 mm FL lens

Captured this bright (mag -3.3) Geminid on one of my meteor detection cameras, Bunbury North. I probably just missed the brightest part of the terminal burst. Good to see that William Stewart got a spectrum of it.

Note there is another fainter meteor on a similar trajectory, although it's actually going in the opposite direction. It appears to be an internal reflection of the "main event".
