The above spectacular image of a meteor streaking through the green glow of the aurora borealis was captured last Friday by Shannon Bileski, a Canadian photographer.
Bileski was at the beach attempting to photograph the northern lights with others from a photography club and an astronomy club when she caught the rare image.
The aurora borealis was on and off all night, but at 11:10 p.m., just as everyone else was packing up their camera gear, the green glow in the sky intensified, according to PetaPixel.
“Suddenly, during one of the eight-second exposures, there was an intense streak of light in the sky and bright green flashes,” the website added. “It was a meteor that had broken up in the atmosphere, and Bileski captured the whole event as the photo above.”
Bileski described the conditions, timing and good fortune in capturing the image as “Amazing.”
