Perseids Aplenty by Matt Quinn
The 2015 edition of the Perseid meteor shower peaked under moonless skies on the night of August 12/13 and was widely observed across Canada. SkyNews received many fine images of the display, and this photo by Ontario photographer Matt Quinn was one of the best.
Quinn’s image is a composite of 50 individual frames captured between midnight and 4 a.m. from the observing site of the Kitchener – Waterloo Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.
