The Big Show of The Geminids Meteor Shower - 2015

The Geminids, What else?! Planned with PhotoPills!

On Monday, December 14th, 2015 around 10:00 pm local time, clouds disappeared from above our heads, leaving us face to face with one of the most active meteor showers we remember.

We spent the following 5 hours shooting and enjoying the show you'll see in the timelapse video. What an epic time!

The timelapse is the result of playing 647 still images at 24fps.

EXIF data: Nikon D4s | 14mm | f/2.8 | 30s | ISO 5000

All shots by Antoni Cladera


After the timelapse, you'll see:

  1. The explosion of a meteor in the sky. This is pretty impressive :)
  2. All meteors in one image. The image is the result of stacking 120 photos. To create this stunning effect, every photo has been rotated around Polaris to keep the radiant point of the meteor shower in the same place. This proves that all meteors appear to converge from one single point in the sky: the radiant.
  3. The Star Trails image that results of stacking 647 photos.
