Image Details:

Three Perseid meteors, stars and the Milky Way. At first I wasn't sure that they are Perseid meteors, then I read that the Perseids are visible anywhere in the sky.
What a thrill to watch them fall from the celestial heavens, lots of them!
The Perseids lower left of the Milky Way and upper right are the only ones that are colorful that the camera captured among all the many images I took.
