Perseids Aplenty by Matt Quinn

Photo of the Week for August 21, 2017

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.
