Meteors or skydivers?
These Air Force skydivers look every bit like entering meteors as they plunge towards Earth trailing smoke from smoke generators attached to their shoes. Shortly after this image, they executed a separation maneuver before opening their parachutes to continue their precision descent to an area in front of the air show crowds. This image was taken 300mm focal length with an exposure of 1/600 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 400.
