Meteor - May 8th 2012

I saw a big meteor go overhead tonight so I decided to point my camera in the vicinity and just happened to capture this faint meteor within a minute or two. If you view it full sized (I cropped it to a little over 800 pixels) you can see that it appears to have been spiraling when it entered the atmosphere. If I boost the whites on the photo the meteor is very colorful but that's probably due to the high ISO.
