Every year, meteor Swift-Tuttle bestows us with a spectacular gift: the Perseid showers that can be seen all across the sky. You can find more formidable photos of this year’s Perseid meteors in our photo search.

Watching for meteors...

If you want to give it a go yourself, you still have time until about August 24th to capture the coruscant light trails. To get you started in photographing the wonders of space, you can find some helpful tips and ask questions in these astrophotography groups.
