    Persistent with Perseids

    Well, this from back in August at the Devil's Tower in Wyoming. I had taken my 9 year old granddaughter up with me so we could watch and capture the Perseids Meteor shower. It seemed like most of the meteors were away from Devil's Tower on that night, but after going through them, I found enough...

    Pesky Perseids

    I ran up to the Devil's Tower with my oldest Granddaughter to capture the Perseids Meteor shower over Devil's Tower.

    Perseids Meteor Shower 2017

    So here's what you need... 1. You have to aim to the NE. All the meteors come out of one basic area and that is to the NE. 2. There is a short window to capture it unfortunately because the moon is 3/4 full and rises at 11pm. Once the moon rises it will wash out 50% of the stars, so will you...
