Meteor over Adirondacks

A shooting star streaks over OK Slip Pond in the Adirondack Mountains of New York in front of the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy(M31) can be seen slightly to the right of the meteor. This is also the first time I captured airglow, the subtle green hue in the sky which can only be seen at very dark sites.
