I am saddened by Leonard Nimoy's passing, and am sharing this photo in tribute. Thank you so very much, Mr. Nimoy. "Stars Dropped Down Like Rain." A very special photo capturing a Lyrid meteor, streaking across the late night sky!!!! Vasquez Rocks. Unique and, at least for Star Trek fans, easily recognizable rock formations, the film location where Captain Kirk fought the Gorn lizard man on "Star Trek" and standing in for Spock's home planet of Vulcan. Yes. And a good place to photograph at night, I think, particularly when during meteor showers such as the Lyrid Meteor Shower. In 687 BC in Zuo Zhuan, one of the earliest Chinese works of narrative history, described the Lyrid meteor shower: "At night, fixed stars are invisible, at midnight, stars dropped down like rain." Title: Stars Dropped Down Like Rain - Lyrid Meteor Shower Over Vasquez Rocks Info: Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens, 30 second exposure, ISO 400 f/4. Mountain light painted with bright flashlight. In 687 BC in Zuo Zhuan, one of the earliest Chinese works of narrative history, described the Lyrid meteor shower: "At night, fixed stars are invisible, at midnight, stars dropped down like rain." 20 April 2013 1:19 am.
