This year's Perseid meteor shower turned out to be a glorious event, treating sky watchers to a dazzling light show. Every Summer, Earth passes near the orbit of comet Swift-Tuttle and crosses it's debris stream. The warm lazy nights are a perfect time to enjoy this cosmic performance and is a favorite of star gazers because they can enjoy long bright streaks of comet dust. Radiating from the constellation Perseus, they linger a few awe-inspiring moments from the ionized gas trails. The shower proved successful to many talented astrophotographers who graciously allowed Stellar Eyes to share their breathe-taking photos. They were able to catch dozens of meteors along with brilliant and colorful air-glow. Their work gives us a chance to immerse in the magic of the universe and be inspired by it's endless wonders. Feel free to share so others can enjoy these truly spectacular images.
