Geminids #2762 viewsAs mentioned in the earlier photo, I had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute. This is the second Geminid Meteor I captured. This one was in the early morning hours and the radiant had risen high in the sky and the metoer is going almost straight down in the middle of the image.

Geminds #1661 viewsI had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute in an attempt to catch a meteor. This was in the evening and the radiant was still near the Eastern horizon. The meteor can be seen in the upper left quadrant of the photo. It's trajectory is near horizontal to the horizon.

The Lowe Fire971 viewsThe WeatherCam caught several good images of the Lowe Fire (named for nearby Mt. Lowe). Quick work from the Angeles National Forest Fire Crews along with Los Angeles County resources kept the fire to around 12 acres with no structures lost.
In this image a Water Dropping Helicopter approaches to make a drop.

OK, I found out a lot more about the Star.

Caught In The Act1874 viewsWe were out of town on July 4th. The "kids" stayed home. Here, my daughter and her friend are caught by the WeatherCam standing on our roof to watch the fireworks from the Rose Bowl.

Fire1569 viewsThe glow from a small brush fire near the top of Lake Avenue can be seen on the right side of this image. Living along the foothills, we are always alert to fires. The sirens woke us up and we went up the street to watch. Quick work from the Los Angeles County Fire Department had the fire under control quickly.

Meteor1578 viewsThere are two great Meteor Showers the end of July and beginning of August. The Delta Aquarid Shower which is the years longest, and the Perseids Meteor Shower which peaks on August 12. Here, the WeatherCam appears to have caught one of the Delta Aquarid meteors during one of the long exposures.
