Perseid Pics

Hey Space Placers!

Shenandoah National Park (SNP) had very large crowds at Big Meadows on Wed & Thurs to see the Perseid Meteor Shower. I had to give 3 presentations as there were over 500 people at the Visitor's Center to see it.

People of all ages came to the Park and gathered in and around Big Meadows to see this annual spectacle. The Perseids did not disappoint as the sky remained pretty clear for most of the night and did not cloud up until the hour or so before dawn.  The clear mountain air resonated with "ohs and ahs" from the crowd as bright meteors were seen in the sky.

Here are some of my pics from the shower.
