A night photographing the Perseid meteor shower

16 Aug

On Monday night we drove high up into the hills of Los Altos to catch a glimpse of 2013’s Perseid meteor shower. The view of the South Bay was spectacular on an unusually warm August night. Although I captured the view, the Perseids chose not to shower on us that night 😦


After shooting 135 25-second exposures, this single lonely streak in the sky was all I got. Better luck next year. It was still fun!
