Perseids Meteor Shower, McCall, Idaho

Up early this morning to shoot the Perseids meteor shower.  Turns out it is challenging to capture the little basterds!  Look closely!

A good part of the challenge for this year’s shower was that a fairly bright moon was up all night.  There was only about 10 minutes between moonset and the astronomical twilight, a period of maximum darkness.

I had a lot of photos like this, an empty net!
