Another from 2010's Perseids Meteor Shower

    Newer Older

    I wanted to share another composite meteor shower image, this one from the 2010 Perseids Meteor Shower as seen in Teller County, CO. Here I am looking more or less behind the radiant of the shower looking west into the Milky Way. Amazingly, I managed to catch a few meteors even in this position. You can see the one I posted from this shower earlier this year in the comments below.

    Image Notes: A three shot composite.

      It's such a shame that often the sky is so illuminated by street lights, car's headlights or bright neon lights that we can hardly see the stars anymore. Look at your shot! Look at how many stars there actually are!! Fabulous! I really wish that one day.. we all get to see the stars again.
