Shooting Star!

I captured this tonight at about 8:00pm near my house in NE OH with a Nikon D90 while taking some pictures on the night sky. I used a tripod and except for this picture I used a cable release.

Forgot to make a wish!

Below are some more pictures. Be sure to click on them to get the enlarged view to really take it in!

Looking northeast. I believe this is the constellation Cassiopeia.

Looking South. This star was the brightest in the sky and was visible since the sun started to go down. Venus or Mars maybe? Jupiter perhaps?

The second brightest star- this is the same area ( although an hour later) where I caught the shooting star. This is looking West.
