2013 Perseid meteor photo

(Photo © wd.bowman) Photographer Bill Bowman created this composite image from photos taken on Aug. 12 near Ward, Colo. He writes: “The Perseid Meteor Shower as seen from the University of Colorado’s Mountain Research Station. This photo is a composite of 12 images (culled from 480) shot over a 4 hour period on the morning of August 12th. The Milky Way had light clouds in it that caught the lights of the nearby Boulder/ Denver Megalopolis and turned it orange. Only marginally adjusted to account for the Earth’s rotation. Note that the meteor trails mostly point to the constellation Perseus…. thus the Perseid meteor shower.”
