Perseids by the Lake

Silver Lake, California

The story

Back in 2017 I decided to travel 3 hours to Silver Lake in the Northern California sierra to capture some of the famous Perseid meteor shower. I also decided to stay away from the radiant (the point from where all meteors seem to originate) and just focus on the composition of a nice nightscape and hoping some fireballs would make it in the frame. Knowing that the meteors would blaze in a direction similar to that of the Milky Way, my target was a no brainer, and the scenery was just perfect for that.What you see is the brightest shooting stars (meteors) I captured over a period of 2 hours. I have not integrated the fainter ones. This is not a single image but a composite of a few, with the meteors aligned right where they happened, relative to the sky.You’ll notice all the bright meteors have a distinctive green-yellow-reddish color, which isn’t rare. The colors are caused by light emitted by different metals when they burn as they enter out atmosphere and ultimately, by the air as well (red).
