Perseid Meteor Shower over Prineville

Perseid Meteor and Milky Way over old car

I visited my Dads house last week, and again, tried my hand at some night photography. The Milky Way had an orange hue due to a wildfire that has started that very day out in Warm Springs some 45 miles away. We were actually lucky to see any stars at all because of the smoke that took over the whole valley around Prineville near of where we were. This was especially true because the Perseid meteor shower was happening, and I really hoped to see some starry action. This old car recently came to find a home on their property and I did a bit of solo light painting. Luckily I saw a lot of meteors while we were out stargazing, including the one captured in this photo.

  4. Great photo, aspescially with the old car in front! We were out in our garden looking for the meteor shower, here in Scandinavia too. We could see some glimpses the next evening, but long waiting until some glimpses in a row (we did unfortunately not know of about this the first evening)
