2013 Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower

A shot I captured of a couple Eta Aquarid meteors passing through the Milky Way over Frosty Drew Observatory.

This past weekend (April, 4-5) the Eta Aquarid meteor shower took place. Being this meteor shower is a rather small meteor shower for northern sky watchers, we had about an hour of much meteor activity. From 3:00 - 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning the sky lit up with meteors streaking from the east to west with beautiful green / blue trails left behind.
I managed to capture the following photograph at Frosty Drew Observatory during the meteor shower.
