Meteoric Glow – Stephen Voss


Sometimes good luck plays a part. While capturing a series of images for a time-lapse atop of Mount John, this bright meteor unexpectedly pierced the sky. Fog had rolled down the lake and enshrouded Tekapo township. Even though this is in the heart of the Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve, townships still need to have lighting, and the effect of the fog is to diffuse this light causing the whole town to glow. But with well controlled and downward directed light sources, note how the sky still remains dark, with stars visible right to the horizon behind the township.
