Photographer By Chance Shots Once-In-A-Lifetime Image Of Meteor


An eye-catching object illuminated the sky of India in 2016 but unfortunately many did not get the opportunity of visualization it. The burning of the emerald meteor was so quick that I am sure those who got the chance of seeing it, were in doubt of the magic of the eye.

Luckily there was one photographer at the correct location at the correct time that night. Prasenjeet Yadav, the photographer was getting ready by setting up the camera for a shot of the sky at the time when the emerald meteor started the action. His camera has captured a magical and astonishing object.

This photograph was so remarkable that it took the photographer to the competition of National Geographic Photographer of the year 2016. As per the Metro, Yadav was amazed by the photograph which he had caught in his lens even though he was a question of validity at first. His idea first was a fluke of sorts. But it was very realistic and important.

This fantastic photograph was one of the 999 photographs that he had captured that night on the time lapse. Even though he never had the expectation of capturing such an amazing picture at a random camping trip, Yadav was obviously fortunate of capturing once-in-a- lifetime’. (You will be able to see the luck of him with the images below)

Yadav said as follows about this image during an interview with Yadav few years ago:
“Anand Varma was visiting me and I was showing him around a mountain range in South India called the Western Ghats.”

“We camped on the side of a road and I set up my Nikon D600 and a 24-70mm lens to take 15-second exposures. I set the camera to take 999 images.”

“I slept next to the camera and it continued taking pictures until dawn. It wasn’t until the next afternoon that I reviewed my images and noticed something unusually bright and green. I showed it to Anand, and we realized that I had captured an extremely rare event.”

“After checking with a few experts, I learned that it was a green meteorite, and getting it on camera is very rare.”

“This is an example of being at the right place at the right time to capture something totally unexpected.”

“For those 15 seconds, I was the luckiest photographer on the planet.”

How do you feel about this stunning image? I was so much impressed with it. These images will actually be admired by us in the years to come.
