Shooting Star I really like this photo as it comes in quite clear. The shooting star is crisp and clean...I dont like to fly let alone look out the window...Love It

That is just awesome.

hmm... I guess seeing a shooting star from an airplane window is actually pretty common/average (i.e. a 4 for originality) let alone capturing it in a photo. Oh well, I still like it :P

Common sight or not and despite the subject matter, this is a very well composed shot. The painter in me likes all the triangles. Regards Ken.

Shooting Star...from an airplane window This image is straight from the camera. Here's the details. I used my 15mm fisheye on my Canon 20D (making it around a 22.5 mm) This was a 3.5 second exposure without a tripod. I pressed the camera up against the window so the lens was right up against it, waited for no turbulance and shot. I also had a blanket over my head and the window to block out the inside lights of the plane being reflected in the shot. I was shooting the wind with the moon above it and some lights down below when after one shot I notice this streak going across the frame (I think it's also being reflected on the wing). I can only assume it was a shooting star (meteorite). It's funny, but I never seem to see shooting stars when I am looking for them, yet here it was on my 3.5 second exposure. Dumb luck. Anyway, I thought this looked like a neat kind of futuristic shot. Thanks for looking. :)
