Southern California Public Radio’s Take Two catchs up with Scott to discuss how he happened into the once-in-a-lifetime good fortune of photographically catching a falling star: in actuality an exploding meteor. “The resulting image is a stroke of good luck that, as a photographer, you dream of, but never expect to actually have happen.”
In addition to their “100 Most Astonishing Shots of 2013,” Gizmodo asks of Scott’s exploding meteor photograph “what are the odds of capturing a moment this rare?” He responds: “It’s a non-chance. There is no way to plan for something like this. No way to even hope for it.” Scott gives a detailed account of the moments leading up to the photo, and his reaction when he realized he had it.
Since 1855, London’s The Daily Telegraph has published some of the most captivating and compelling photography on earth. Scott was honored to have them include his exploding meteor image in their “World News Pictures of the Year 2013.”
