Perseid Meteor Shower 2012

I ventured east of San Diego last night to shoot the night sky during the annual Perseid meteor shower. I was lucky to capture a bright meteor shooting through the Milky Way!

    Nice! perfect location for that meteor to fall into frame. I was out in Anza borrego for the Perseids. I saw lots of meteors but didn't catch anything this spectacular.

    Awesome shot Ryan!

    Nicely done, Ryan! So jealous as I stared at the sky quite a few times this weekend and couldn't see ANY meteors between the city lights and haze. Maybe next year I'll make it out of town enough to see a few and maybe try a shot. Nice catch!

    Beautiful. I'd be curious to know the EXIF on this one.

    Just wish I could get a sky like this. Really nice shot Ryan.

    Gorgeous!! I wish I could have made it out for that trip. I went up to Mt Wilson on Friday night after work, saw only a few meteors and captured none.

    Sam The orange glow is not the sunset. That is San Diego and Tijuana, 50 miles to the southwest. This was taken at 1:30am! :)

    Thanks everyone!
