Perseids meteor shower as observed from the Snowy Range in Wyoming "This is a composite of 23 images, 22 for the meteors/stars and 1 taken at sunrise for the foreground which was lightly blended in. I also corrected the orientation of the meteors to account for the rotation of the earth (this took forever!)”

Night sky watcher William Berry sent in a photo of a Perseid meteor at Slide Mountain over Washoe Valley, NV. He says the image is a wide angle stack of about 1 hour, 30 second exposures, and he brightened the meteor trail a bit.
