Thanks spacefan! The yellow

Thanks spacefan! The yellow dot in the center is the star Betelgeuse, a red giant. It is a massive star that dwarfs our sun and could go supernova at any time... meaning tomorrow or in a few million years from now ;)

The meteor is the greenish streak over on the left side of the photo. It shows up as a streak because the long exposure photograph captured its entire burn up through our atmosphere. Cheers!
