Watching the Stars Go Around on Flickr.
For the Perseid Meteor shower, we took the family and drove out to Mirror Lake in the High Uintas of Northern Utah to enjoy the night sky. It was a perfect night, being extremely dark and cloudless.
In the middle of this photo you can see the whitish figure of the Milky Way. It was very close to the North Star at this hour, and the kids had commented that they had never seen the stars so bright as we saw them this night. Totally a fun family activity and a great opportunity for me to practice my night shooting.
