Stellar sights

For the past couple of nights, the Perseid meteor shower has put on a dazzling light show in the sky. The meteors -- debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet -- rain down once a year. This year's shower was supposed to be especially spectacular, and judging from the photos iReporters posted, it definitely was.

 

In fact, SteveGifford called it "one of the coolest things I've ever seen." A cloud-free night in Haubstadt, Indiana, let him capture clear images of the meteors and their colorful tails (large photo).

 

Richardlew wasn't quite so lucky. He had to fight clouds in Maynardville, Tennessee, to get his shots, but he managed to capture a few beautifully lit photos (lower left). gfydad also got gorgeous lighting in Lancaster, California (lower middle). And defmatnyc set his camera on automatic and left it on his Los Angeles roof all night. It captured a brighter image (lower right).

 

Kevinp even managed to create a super-cool time lapse of the entire meteor shower. Check it out.

 

Be sure to check out the rest of their stellar photos along with all the others we received. And, if you watched the shower, we'd love for you to share your own.

What a factual article. But aside from that issue, let me share something. If you live in the upper Midwest, and you like air and/or water shows, you could check out the Chicago Air and Water Show. (For the best aerial display in the Midwest, you watch the Packers – the Vikings, Bears, and Lions only use running backs.) Jokes aside, the Chicago Air and Water Show will take place August 15th and 16th, and it's free – no payday loans no faxing to watch. It began over 50 years ago, and features the best and most entertaining pilots of both the civilian sector, and also the air teams of the Army, Navy, and Air Force – and you don't need short term loans to watch the Chicago Air and Water Show.
