Playing around with night vision and the night sky (bonus shooting star!)

The video doesn't quite do it justice, but however many stars you can see with the naked eye, you can see easily more than double with night vision! meteorite burning up in the atmosphere at the 1:38 min mark

Its not a shooting star, its a meteorite. You can see a lot more if you pay attention to the cycles. Search google for Meterorite showers, there is about 5 each year that produce some good results. About every few seconds something the size of a VW Beetle enters our atmosphere. I've seen a few the size of a small bus.

I know it was a meteorite. Thus me calling it a meteorite in the post

That was during a meteor shower, just by the time I got home from training it wasn't at the peak of the night earlier (100/hr)
