Very goo indeed.
I only heard about this on the radio a few minutes ago.
August 13th, 2011  
Great shot!
August 13th, 2011  
awesome shot!! I tried to go out last night and early this morning but there were too many clouds :(
great shot though!
August 13th, 2011  
Oh SO well done Mike!! Instant fav for this! I tried to shoot from my balcony last night after the babe went to bed, but the city lights were just to bright. Aaah well, I can look at your and be suitably impressed:)
August 13th, 2011  
Well done I tried to get a pic last night but too cloudy. Def a fav
August 13th, 2011  
Excellent shot, your lucky you had lovely clear skies
August 13th, 2011  
Woohoo! Mike's on the pop page:)
August 13th, 2011  
No way! That's awesome! Beautiful blue sky and silhouette of the ground. Fave!
August 13th, 2011  
Lucky you, lovely shot !
August 14th, 2011  
Wow, that is amazing.
August 14th, 2011  
thanks for sharing - tried to see them but too much light pollution around here
August 14th, 2011  
Great capture!
August 14th, 2011  
Excellent Mike. Did you have your camera set and then when you saw one, pulled the trigger? Inquiring minds want to know.

Obviously you must have been in a pretty decently dark area as you got good star light for only a 15 second exposure.
August 14th, 2011  
Wow, fantastic capture. I looked up for awhile to see one but didn't :(
August 14th, 2011  
Amazing shot! Well done!
August 14th, 2011  
Brilliant!
August 14th, 2011  
I'm jealous - we had seriously cloudy skies last night :-(
This is a great capture!
August 14th, 2011  
Wow!!! We couldnt see any - this is spectacular!!
August 14th, 2011  
Excellent shot!
August 14th, 2011  
@pwallis Wow! I would not have looked there since I don't have a lot of followers. Thanks for pointing this out to me...I'm shocked ;-)
August 14th, 2011  
Amazing!! I can't seem to do these shots...
August 14th, 2011  
@pwallis @sdpace @webfoot Thanks a lot for the comments and fav! I set the camera up to take interval pictures of 15sec exposures every 30 sec. This creates a lot of pictures if you keep this up for a long time. I was taking pictures for about 2 hours hoping to capture something. This was taken at 5:12AM outside of Sunol, CA along Calaveras Rd on a brief flat area. It is very dark and away from the city lights of the SF Bay Area.
