Meteor in Canis Minor

Serendipitously, I got captured this meteor while exposing Procyon in a shift-and-add series. The field of view measures around 3 degrees. The meteor track becomes cut, but it seems to be not much longer. This meteor could achieved magnitud 1 or 0, similar in bright to Procyon. Taking into account its directionality it may belong to Geminids meteor shower caused by the asteroid 3200 Phaethon.
