05/13/13 Jet Star Farewell (Milky Way)

Posted: May 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

I went down to the coaster early this morning. It may be my last time photographing the Jet Star, it is scheduled to be taken down this week. Such a beautiful night and I was lucky to photograph the Milky Way and catch a couple of meteors just above the coaster. The second image was taken at 3:45 AM. This may be an iridium flare from a satellite or a meteor. I had a great time and will miss our quiet nights together.

    Wonderful images, Ray. Your photographs of this iconic roller coaster and nearby scenes have been outstanding, and I for one, am fortunate to have viewed them.

    I was out last night, but did not stay out long enough to catch the Milky Way, or maybe it was because I had so much more light pollution than you did over the sea.

    Great photography, Ray, Van Gogh has to take a back seat with his “Starry Night”!
