Astronomy snapshot from the Boing Boing Flickr Pool: Perseids at Mt. Rainier, WA


Super photo!, not sure about the dancing meteors though, surely invisible until their 500ms of flaming re-entry?

It wasn’t the best Perseid shower I’ve seen … but it was the first in a long time that I didn’t have obscured by either skyglow or clouds. Also watched a lot of satellites go by, of course.

(Actually, the shower I’ve seen most often is the Orionids… because there was a period when I was often driving several hours westward through nowheresville at the appropriate time of year, returning home from visiting friends. Less so since I relocated to be closer to said friends.)

Nice photo, but i looked in vain for any meteors in it
