Photo by @babaktafreshi the world at night project if you have clear and relatively dark sky this weekend enjoy the perseid meteor shower, aug 11 to 13. the peak is from saturday midnight to the morning of sunday the 13th but the bright moon rising before midnight vanishes a part of the sky so you might consider the darker evening hours (10-12pm). this annual meteor shower is more favored for the northern hemisphere but its visible from anywhere on earth. the meteors don’t necessarily appear near the shower radiant in constellation perseus, they can be anywhere in the sky. in ideal condition you might see a meteor or two per minute depending on the peak hour, light pollution, and moonlight. photographed above was during the 2016 perseids peak from yosemite national park in california, with iconic half dome and el capitan in the foreground. note the pleiades (the seven sisters star cluster) and the reddish california nebula in the sky, captured with my astrophotography camera which receives more red than regular cameras. follow me @babaktafreshi for more of our planet’s night wonders. @natgeo creative @natgeo #meteorshower #meteor #shootingstar #perseids #pleiades #yosemite #california #nightsky #astronomy #stargazing #astrophotography #nightphotography #longexposure
