Allsky Cam events

 Is it Cygnus?  Is it Aquila?  Don't know but it is definitely on top of the skycam!!!
 
 Another greenish meteor caught in the wee hours of the morning (2:57 AM)  This is a stack of 3 images to get the whole trail.
 
 Another meteor caught on the cam. This one from 02/15 at 10:51pm. It lasted two frames so I stacked the frames in Registax. It comes pretty close to showing how the big dipper points to Arcturus and Spica.  The smear over the big dipper is dirt from our last rainfall/dust blowing event.
 
 This is a shot of a clear sky.  Ruidoso (30 miles away) light pollution is reflected from a cloud at 7 O'clock.  Venus is at the horizon, and Jupiter is above it.  The winter milky way extends from 7 to 2 O'clock, while zodical light extends from 4 to 9 O'clock.  As you can see it is brighter in the west, but does extend all the way to the east.  (Milky way and ZL look like an X on the picture).  The ZL runs along the ecliptic and the signs of the zodiac..Leo-Cancer-Gemini-Taurus-Aries-Pisces

Venus is in Pisces,  Jupiter in Aries, and Mars is in Leo (but has not cleared the horizon in this picture)
 
 This is an early morning image using the motion indicator.  The moon is rising in the east and illuminating the clouds.  This is a stack of 2 images each showing half of what I believe is a green meteor trail south of the center of the image (North is up). Exposures are 4 seconds each, so the meteor was ~ 8 seconds. 
 
 After checking with heavens-above.com I found that these interesting images are of the International Space station.  It was scheduled to over fly Carrizozo at an 89 degree altitude at just this time.  It appears in 3 consecutive frames.
