On this day in 1885 – November 27th – the first known photograph of a meteor was taken during the Andromedid meteor shower.

Austro-Hungarian astronomer Ladislaus Weinek caught a 7mm-long trail at his Prague observing station. (Since the 19th century the Andromedids have faded so much that they're no longer generally visible to the naked eye.)
