Post your 2022 Perseids meteors here...

The Perseids meteor shower is underway and should peak around the night of August 11-12.

I've been shooting low in the southern sky for the past two weeks to capture delta Aquariids and alpha Capricornids, but I also managed to capture this Perseids last night (Aug 6). I will try to capture more Perseids on Aug 11-14 by shooting high near the zenith and/or over top of my house toward the NE.

Full image downsized to 1920 x 1280 px.

100% crop at 3840 x 2160 px.

The Moon will be very bright this year complicating our shoots, but it is still possible to catch several since they are often rather bright. Good luck everyone!
