The Perseids Meteor Shower

This is my final shot of my 2-night adventure sleeping in my truck at East Fork State Park to capture the Perseid Meteor Showers of 2015.

I prefer this over my Wednesday morning shot because you can actually see a few of the meteors in the final composite photograph and there are less aircraft trails showing. Lastly as you can tell this shot includes Polaris (the North Star) which clearly shows that the rest of the stars rotate around the North Star. I'm sure there's folks that can better explain that, but I just think it's cool! I'll be adding videos of the stars paths later today! Enjoy...

Attach an invitation!
