About MeI live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I explore the deeper reaches of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem while also trying to raise awareness about light pollution and the importance of dark skies through photography and video.

2010 Perseid Meteor Shower Over Jackson Hole, WyomingAugust 15, 2010
0 Flares 0 Flares ×
The Perseid Meteor Shower put on a great show this year! A couple of nights before the peak, I went out to Shadow Mountain in Bridger-Teton National Forest to watch the show. I was surprised by the amount of light pollution coming from Jackson, but it luckily didn’t deter from a beautifully dark sky farther north. I was able to catch two meteors in this particular shot. One is visible streaking across the Milky Way Galaxy, another, a little more faint, is just beneath that almost perpendicular to it.
