Once in a Lifetime!

Click on photo to view enlarged

My photo buddy (Chad) and I were in Teton National Park on Monday night taking photos of the night sky with the Moulton Barn in the foreground (freezing our tails off) when this incredible streak of light appeared in the sky to our south east, headed north west.  We thought it was a comet or meteor until we learned the next morning that it was what was left of a Chinese rocket that had deposited a satellite in orbit this past December.  How often do you happen to be at the exact right place at the exact right time and are set up to capture something like this?  Sorry about the large watermark on the photo, but if anyone is interested in purchasing a print or licensing this photo in a higher quality and resolution please contact me, OTHERWISE PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PHOTO FOR ANY REASON. 

Don't be shy - leave a comment or email me.  I look forward to hearing from you! Did you notice? Now you can click below and share this post with your friends on facebook!

Wow Scott - that is very impressive! I would think that was worth 'freezing your tail off' for.

Awesome picture! I happy to see the watermark. I have had pictures taken more than I care to think. You must protect yourself.
