    Milky Way Meteors


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     oldgeezer66 stood outside with his camera from 11 in the evening to 2 in the morning, August 10, so he could capture a photo of the Perseid meteor shower over Kekaha, Hawaii. 'The highlight was seeing so many. I was happy to just get a few of the brighter ones on the camera. My advice is to get to seek out a place without much light pollution, use a wide angle lens and a tripod is absolutely essential,' he said. 'I find that meteor showers are best if watched with someone you can share the experience with.'
