Meteor over the Desert Lion
Photo and caption by Ahmed Waddah
This shot was taken in a series of continuous shots for a star trail in the Western White Desert in the Farafra Oasis area in Egypt. Have I place my camera in another direction, I would have not got the shot. As My camera was not pointed towards Polaris nor in the direction of earlier observed meteor showers. This is what I call a one in a thousand shot. The structure is one of the thousand chalk rocks found in the area, looks like a Lion.
Location: White Desert, Farafra Oasis, Egypt
