I drove out to Mount Pinos in the Los Padres National Forest Saturday night to celebrate a buddy's birthday and check out the meteor shower. We had to drive 80 miles away from LA to avoid light pollution. We saw a number of meteors before the clouds started to roll in around 1:30AM. Here's one image of a Perseid meteor in front of the Milky Way. This was taken at the top of Mt. Pinos.
