Star Man and Perseus [C_059960-1]

Ok, that's not Jeff Bridges (it's Howard) and it's not Perseus you see (I think it's Aquila) in the Milky Way.

 

But it is a Perseid Meteor over Galen's Arch (aka Mobius Arch) in Alabama Hills.

 

Because the frame in which I caught the meteor had the arch blown out by wayward light, I replaced the foreground (and Howard) using a better light painted frame just after the meteor. Hoping to catch a LOT more of these tonight and tomorrow!

 

PS: Yes, the meteor is definitely green.
