Only happens once every 133yrs. You could at least see if it's a clear sky & if you could see some

I will try to transfer some stuff to my computer here in a little bit. I know I captured at least a few. It never failed that one would shoot past out of frame or behind me while I was aiming in another direction. Still cool to watch.

I didn't feel like editing these, so they are what they are. I'm sure I could work with the raw files to actually bring out the milky way a bunch. I wasn't able to ever get anything great captured. Most of the larger streaks I saw always seemed to happen behind me or in another direction just out of frame. I stayed out for about an hour just repeatedly shooting 20-25 second shots in various locations. These look very lacking for photos, but it was quite a show from what I saw. A number of them streaked for long distances, but I never got one captured.

If someone had a bunch of cameras setup across the whole sky, you probably could have captured a lot of great stuff.
