Between 12:30 am CDT and 3 am CDT I probably saw 4 or 5 noticeably bright meteors with my naked eyes, I must admit thought that my interest was aberrant at times.
Between the constant cloud clover and lens fogging up due to the high humidity, hopes for just capturing some star trails also fizzed away.
Did capture one interesting fireball and what looks like a smoke cloud. Never seen or captured something like this before. I'm no astronomy buff to be certain but googling around it's does look like a "smoke trail" / "persistent train". Can anyone with expertise confirm this? These are 20 second exposures and I see the faintest hint in up to the 14th frame which means it lasted for an amazing 4 minutes.
