-22 degrees and a Great Show
I stood out in the cold -22° Celcius (-7.6° F) for nearly a couple of hours trying to get a picture of the meteor shower – The Quadrantids. The sky was filled with them but my pocket camera – a Canon IXUS 850IS simply doesn’t have the lens nor chip to catch these really fast specs of light as they flash across the sky in the fraction of a second. But it was a very nice spectacle though.
Also endured the cold weather and the Quadrantids produced some nice “medium-sized” meteors this year. I had my DSLR up, but it froze completely after 2 hrs so I only caught a few with my camera as well…
