Perseid Meteor Shower Pictures


I got up at 2AM last night, so I could watch the Perseid meteor shower without the moon washing out all the faint meteors. I took about a hundred pictures in the course of two hours, and the three showing meteors are included in the gallery. I had to click “enhance” in iPhoto to see the meteors, which should explain why you see such vividly colored stars.

As well, I watched for meteors just naked eye, and I saw 70 meteors in about 1.5 hours, which is pretty good and about typical for my dark site.
