Meteors, Mars, and the Milky Way
Here's my first take from the 2018 Persieds Meteor Shower as seen in Wyoming near the Laramie River. This year was a great show! The lack of moonlight also really helped to pop the Milky Way.
This image is a composite of all the meteors I recorded over the course of the evening from this perspective, quite active for not being pointed directly at the radiant!
