Details:
Here is the Perseid Meteor Shower as seen from Bangor, N. Ireland. The skies were quite hazy but the cloud was thin enough to allow my camera to pick up 64 Perseids over the course of the night. Without having looked at my statistics for previous years yet, I get the impression that last nights activity was a little bit better than average.

Taken by John Ashley on August 13, 2015 @ Glacier National Park, Montana

Camera Used: NIKON CORPORATION NIKON D750
Exposure Time: 150/10
Aperture: f/1.4
ISO: 3200
Date Taken: 2015:08:13 15:22:59

Details:
Coyotes started singing at the stroke of midnight, but meteor numbers didnt start ramping up until the barred owl started calling at around 2 a.m. This is a composite of 17 meteors that fell above Mount Saint Nicholas in Glacier National Park, Montana, between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.

Some of the light blue is air glow. The pink is a mixture of clouds and smoke from the 15,000 acre Thompson wildfire burning a few miles north of this location.

Taken by Brad Goldpaint on August 13, 2015 @ Mount Shasta, CA


Details:
The peak of the 2015 Perseid Meteor Shower occurred in the early morning hours of August 13th. Needless to say, if you saw it from a clear, dark location, it certainly did not disappoint. I saw roughly 3-5 meteors per minute with beautiful, green glowing trails. This image is a composite of all the meteors I captured from Mount Shasta, CA. All of the meteors were captured from 12:30am – 4:30am and the composite contains roughly 65 meteors. The large mountain in the distance is Mount Shasta and the glow from the base of the mountain is from the city lights of Mount Shasta.

Here’s also some technical detail about the photo:

I subtracted the meteors from the images that contained them throughout the 4 hour period. Due to the Earth’s rotation, the meteors were not in the correct location once overlayed with the single background image. To find where the meteors originated from in relation to the background image, I used Polaris (North Star), Capella, Pleiades, Mirphak, Double Cluster, and the constellation Perseid to triangulate their position.

I went outside to see what I could see, but in the DC area there was some mild cloud cover in addition to all the light pollution. I "thought" I might have seen one or two out the corner of my eye, but I think it was in my head.

Never fails, something cool in the sky? Clouds...

I saw several as I left the house for work. I saw five in rapid succession. Once I got to work though the light pollution here at the plant overcomes nearly everything except Jupiter, Saturn, Vega and Arcturus. And the moon of course (and ISS when it flies over). It's rare that I can get out away in the shadows and see much beyond the big guys.

Can't you smell my T levels?
I'm currently on Majorka and saw a few of them with Milky Way in the background. My wish was that I'm back home soon at my more powerful PC.
