In the event we did manage to see and photograph a somewhat wishy-washy green aurora, but the best photo was of one of the several Orionid meteors we saw. The Orionids are debris from Halley's Comet, believe it or not, so it's always a bit special to see some bright ones!
The sky was clear and dark, so I photographed a few of the best-known constellations, as well as the fuzzy patch that is M31, the Andromeda Galaxy and a few of the seven satellites we watched passing over.
