The night of Aug. 11 was the peak of the Perseids meteor shower, and this small gallery contains some of the images of the meteors as seen from a point north of Weyburn. Most are with the camera pointed straight overhead, but a couple are of the horizon to the north, with one recording subtle shades of colour, and a faint meteor trail in the upper left part of the photo. The meteor shower is from the Earth passing through the dust and debris of a comet, in this case the debris of the 109P/Swift-Tuttle comet, which was last seen on Earth in 1992. Even though the peak of the meteor shower is past, there are still meteors to be seen each night from now until Aug. 24. The best time this week is before midnight, before the moon rises.
