Photographer captures glimpses of meteor shower

TOM HINDMAN/DAILY MAIL Those who stayed awake and ventured out to a low light area in the night sky were treated to a spectacular show of a meteor shower Saturday morning. Meteorologists forecast that peak showers would be between 2 and 4 a.m. This image was shot at 1:41am at Seneca Rocks. The first-ever Camelopardalid meteor shower peaked in the wee hours of Saturday, offering stargazers a rare sight -- the debut meteor display from the dusty Comet 209P/LINEAR.

Sky-viewers were thrilled by the possibility of this weekend’s Camelopardalids meteor shower. Some expected to see hundreds of meteors shoot across the night sky on Friday.

Turned out that wasn’t exactly the case.

Still, Charleston Daily Mail photographer Tom Hindman captured some stunning images at West Virginia’s Seneca Rocks and compiled them in a time-lapse video.
