August 13 Meteors

The Perseids are probably now past their peak for 2017. The featured image summarizes how last night went here in Tucson. The night was a mixed bag for mostly clouds and 0.50″ of rain. The camera did pick up a few nice bright Earth-grazing Perseids during the beginning of the night.
