Danny Bersch, a colleague, and I both went to the Florence Junction site on 16 November.  In the early morning hours of 17 November he captured this meteor on film.  Amazingly, he was shooting from a fixed tripod.  The meteor entered his frame before star trails started to form so the exposure time was less than 30 seconds and perhaps as little as 15 seconds.
