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.
