Thanks Guys. My processing pretty much sucks! :what: :jumphappy:

I freaked out when I looked at the images and saw that. I remember I kept seeing these little things zinging around in the sky while I was setting up the shot and paid no attention to it. I figured all my years of partying was paying a little visit! I did not realize that meteor shower was happening.
