Meteor Plume

I got lucky during the Geminid meteor shower this year and managed to capture part of a very bright track and persitent train or afterglow near the Orion Constellation.
There is a video of the complete event at
This set of images has the track superimposed on each image to illustrate how the afterglow spread from its source.
