Although the timing was right, the composition was not. The Galactic Center was to the left of the North Sister and most of the Milky Way shot out of the frame. An hour later, the Milky Way lined up just right and 2 meteors entered the scene. It was amazing to watch how fast the position changes when you have a mountain peak as a reference point.
