Perseids

_MG_7995SM

I got out last night Aug. 14th, I saw quite a few Perseids but I had given up on photographing any so I was taking long exposure shots of the Polaris (north star) region and got a lucky shot of one anyhow.  I gotta say it’s nice living in the country… but even I have light pollution. That huge bright glow to the lower left is the Nowata Metro Area.

The Perseid in this shot is in the upper left on the very edge of the frame.

My first Perseid Shot of the year taken on Aug. 13th.  This shot is color corrected with GIMP to highlight the star field which includes parts of the Constellation Pegasus including the Andromeda Galaxy to the right of the meteor.
