Photo of the Week – 2020-08-15

For those of you who didn’t stay up to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower this week, you didn’t miss too much. Here is a composite of all the meteors visible from the Town of Parry Sound’s William Street Park the night of August 12 until a little after midnight, about 2 hours in total. There were more satellites, not included, passing through the frame than meteors. But, it was a beautiful night and the Perseids provided a great excuse to get out under the stars. (The bright coloured streaks at the bottom of the screen are the lights of cars and trucks on Highway 400 crossing the Seguin River.) (August 2020)
