The Perseid meteor shower was at its peak this week. This pretty show is an annual event, with the best viewing approximately Aug 8-13.

Like all stars, this shower is best viewed from a dark place–increasingly difficult to find in our well-lit cities. Even so, it is visible to many even in urban environments.

Photographing this popular shower is a great night time photography event. To get the full effect, and the best shots, head for the darkest area possible. You may be lucky enough to see up to 100 meteors in an hour!

We have the comet Swift-Tuttle to thank for this light show. The meteors are small bits of space debris left in its wake.

We’d love to see YOUR best shots of the Perseids, or other meteor showers.
