The Geminid meteor shower at Flight Level 380


I hope you like the picture, it took me 75 photos of 15 sec exposure each to get only two with meteors in the frame. 
The camera was isolated from airframe vibrations by a soft padding on the glareshield, I used a two-second self-timer to avoid shutter release camera shake.
[Canon 6D + Samyang 14mm f2.8 wide open, ISO 16000, 15sec]

5h flight.
