This past weekend the Perseid Meteor Shower graced out presence. Alas, the moon rise was rather quick and bright. It was my first attempt at photographing a meteor shower (steep learning curve, lol). The first night was rather slow, shooting star wise but the following night was amazing with grandiose meteor tails. We even had a glimpse of the Northern Lights, including the “xylophone” formation. Thanks Shan and Val for two fun nights of star gazing.
