Last night we took a quick road trip up to Lost Maples State Natural Area to attend a star party, with the main event being the peak of this year’s Perseids Meteor Shower. The park hosts were very accommodating and helpful, guiding everyone to a special viewing area up above the overflow parking. The featured astronomy guests were unable to make it but nonetheless we still had a good time, observing several awing glowing streaks and trailing tails.
Despite many attempts to capture a meteor trail on my camera, I didn’t walk away empty handed. I’m still learning the unique nuances of astro photography developing but hope you enjoy these two that I was pretty proud of.
