Oxbow Bend on the Snake River

This is the second of two panoramics I shot at Oxbow Bend. The processing of the two images was the same - stitch 6 vertical images and use Lightroom to make minor editing choices. This one was shot about 30 minutes after the first panoramic and the Moon might have been moving into place for a daytime rise. The Moon turns black skies blue. The clouds had dissipated enough and the breeze calmed the river's surface so that star reflections could be seen on the Snake River.

The very bright and much larger object in the sky on the far right of the image (and its reflection on the river) is very likely a meteorite that produced a bright flash and a loud "ka-whomp" sound as it exploded upon entry into Earth's atmosphere just as I was finishing exposing the last of the images for this panoramic. The light flash and loud explosion noise was very noticeable and attention-getting!
