Posting this image to hopefully get folks excited about the night sky, since the Perseids Meteor Shower is peaking this weekend!
I am thrilled that NASA again is featuring one of my images for the event, you can see it and get more Perseids info here: www.nasa.gov/connect/chat/perseids_2012.html
I was surprised there was this much light pollution around Chinle, AZ. Thankfully if you get out of town a bit like here, you can still get an impressive view of the night sky. For this image I used ISO 6400, so the camera is seeing more stars than a naked eye would. I took this image on my solar eclipse trip back in May.
