More Perseids from Ohio

A few days ago, I shared an image of some Perseid meteors captured by John Chumack at his observatory near Dayton, Ohio. Although the Moon was very close to Full and, therefore, the conditions hardly ideal this year, observers did catch quite a few Perseids over the past several days, and I hope you were one of them.

I have the pleasure of sharing another image of John's, this one taken August 12, when he captured more than 100 meteors. For more on John's astroimaging, see
