Four of us watched the Perseid Meteor Shower this evening from Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, Texas. We counted a total of 213 meteors over 3.5 hours. At least 26 of those were not associated with the Perseids. This is an image of one Perseid passing near the Andromeda Galaxy. ISO 3200. 15 second exposure. F2.8. Canon 5D Mark II.
