Perseids Meteors

Spending time out on Gooseberry Island in Westport, Massachusetts last night. It’s one of the few spots in my area with little light pollution. I’m always astounded when I can view upon our distant stars. Last night was extremely amazing due to the Perseids Meteor Shower. Since the moon was nowhere to be seen, the stars were in full force. The photos below are not manipulations. They’ve had their brightness/contrast altered slightly. That’s it.

Now get off the internet and go see this for yourself! 😀
