Location Mount Rainier National Park
Date and Time Taken August 12th, 2015
Story behind the image Talk about a night to remember! The morning of Thursday August 13th, 2015 the Perseid Meteor shower peaked. I was working at Mt. Rainier National Park and created this image from a 2 hour long time-lapse video to record as many Perseid Meteors as possible. The alignment of our Milky Way was situated perfectly vertical over Mount Rainier, an active volcano. Between 2 and 5am we counted over 200 meteors! Unfortunately the camera recorded only about 40 of them.
Equipment Details Nikon D750 and Rokinon 24mm F/1.4
Post-processing Details Each image with a meteor was manually aligned on one main star field to place meteors in their respective location in the night sky.
