A beautiful meteor display is put on each summer courtesy of comet Swift–Tuttle. I observed the shower from my home in the suburbs of Richmond VA and despite the moderate light pollution thoroughly enjoyed the the show.
This photography is a composite of 24 of the brightest meteors images taken during a two hour time span in the early morning hours of Aug 12, 2016. Following the direction from which meteors appear to originate shows the radiant point in the constellation Perseus for all but the one sporadic meteor (top left).
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.
