That would be a satellite. If you go to a place where the sky is really dark, there will be at least one above you somewhere.

was there last night. I saw one of what I thought to be a star starting to move. It moved two little circles to the right and it disappeared off into the space, moving away from earth.

The second, as mentioned is a plane. The first is a satellite, I'm 99% sure. I'll post up when I get home from Squamish. You'll see what a meteor REALLY looks like, caught on camera.

Meteor.


Another Meteor. Timing on this one was JUST off, as the exposure ended just as the meteor flashed across the sky. Oh well.


Satellite. Lower right corner.


Just wish I had my remote trigger with me.

Yeah!!! It wasn't a satellite either because it was so bright. Everyone there were a bit shocked to see it.

You should point your camera at where the meteors are originating from.

Heard there are more tonight and tomorrow night. Sucks you have to go really far to see it. Dunno if there's any place in Burnaby to see those. Don't think Burnaby Mountain is dark enough.

Pitt Lake is good - not terribly far, the surrounding mountains block a lot of the city light without blocking too much of the sky.

Went out to Crescent Beach last night, probably not the best place to sit, but we were there for about half an hour and saw 20-30? 2 REALLY bright, huge ones too It was pretty cool.

Also got pulled over but the cop let us go because my brother hadn't been drinking, just asked him to get his headlight fixed so he didn't get pulled over again (one headlight motor is toast)
