Meteor trail and comet

Tom Masterson and Terry Hancock and the Grand Mesa Observatory , Purdy Mesa, Colorado recent took a stunning image of a meteor trail, which shared the field of view with comet C/2021 A1 (Leonard) and Globular Cluster M3. You can nicely see the mesospheric wind shears breaking tearing apart the meteor trail, traced by the chemiluminescent glow of the meteoric matter.  Copyright Tom Masterson and Terry Hancock.
