Located in southwestern Virginia is one of the few remaining covered bridges in the US that was built higher in the middle than on either end; hence the name of "humpback". The bridge was built in 1857 and is the oldest remaining covered bridge in the state of Virginia. The bridge spans a tributary of the Jackson River and is 109 feet long. Located near the city of Covington, Virginia.
On a night in late May the weather cooperated but the meteors didn't. Lots of people turned out to view the Camelopardalids Meteor Shower, a handful of Richmond Astronomical Society members and perhaps 25 or so Richmond Photography Meetup Group Members. For several hours we had our own mini star party! While most everyone enjoyed the dark skies the meteor shower was a no show. Fortunately the stars were spectacular and much observing and photography ensued.
