Also on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/36684976)

Make sure to play in HD FULL SREEN.

Shot in RAW format. Manual mode, Exposure was 30 seconds on most Milky Way shots,
15-30 seconds on Aurora. ISO 1600 – 6400 F2.8.

At :53 and 2:17 seconds into the video you see a Meteor with a Persistent Train.
Which is ionizing gases, which lasted over a half hour in the cameras frame.
Phil Plait wrote an article about the phenomena here (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/10/02/a-meteors-lingering-tale/).
There is a second Meteor with a much shorter persistent train at 2:51 in the video.
This one wasn’t backlit by the moon like the first, and moves out of the frame quickly.

Watch for two Deer at 1:27 (look for a quick flash in lower left)

Most of the video was shot near the White River in central South Dakota in September and October 2011,
but there are other shots from Arches National Park in Utah,
and Canyon of the Ancients area of Colorado during June 2011.

The Aurora were shot in central South Dakota in September 2011 and near Madison, Wisconsin on October 25, 2011.
