Photographer Accidentally Captures A Meteor While Photographing A Volcano

In September 2016, photographer and Nikon Ambassador Daniel Kordan was leading a photography workshop in Klyuchevskaya Sopka on the Kamchatka Peninsula in northeast Russia.

While photographing a minor volcano eruption with his students, Kordan got lucky and also managed to catch a meteor.

“We stayed with my group at camp close to a small pond,” Kordan tells PetaPixel. “We caught reflections of volcanoes and accidentally I also caught a shooting star during a long 25-second exposure.”
