Minnewanka Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
The sky got cloudy just a few hours before the maximum of the Quadrantids. There were a lot of elks on the way to the lake I was shooting. Started to film anyway just before the ISS was passing over the frozen lake, then the sky started to clear. Then a bright fire ball lit the ground for a few seconds.
