Wow, what a great picture. I like how the storm is contained to that one small section of the photo. It's almost as if the photo reads like a story, just how good photography should.

I had to take a second look, such a cool picture.

I am thinking about doing a hike up a recent mountain and having a camp out to see if I can see the stars really well. I live in BC, Canada and was curious do you think the stars would be as visible as that out in the country side away from any major city?

You mean Meteor right?

That doesn't look like a comet to me.

Looks like a meteor.

But yes, cool pic....of a meteor!

I know that light pollution is very bad in some places. I am in SW Ohio and can only see the most recognizable stars. The last time I saw them from horizon to horizon was on a highway between PA and Columbus Ohio. I pulled over to have a look.

I know that folks out west probably take it for granted that all the stars are visible. I would love to see them from the desert sometime!

Oh, and the pic even says "PerseidStorm" at the end of it's web address.

More evidence for the meteor theory.

You would be amazed at how much more you can see of the stars and constellations away from major city light. When I was a kid, we lived in Oscar, LA, and the sky was so clear at night I thought everyone could see the stars as we did. On nights with a full moon, it were as if the sun were out...my brother and I could literally play football by moonlight.

When we moved to Baton Rouge, the stars disappeared, masked by this pinkish/orange glow to the night sky.

One of the reasons I was happy to relocate my family to Watson. Only 20 miles from Baton Rouge, but the sky is almost like I saw it as a kid. Especially away from our neighborhood where the street lights don't interfere. Even with them, my girls (under 6 yrs old) love to go out back at night and "Say goodnight to the stars" They know more now about planets and constellations than I did at 20.

I can remember being in Hammond, LA (rural) in grad school back when Halle Bop (sp?) was in town. Now that was a show!

I went to this guy's site, this seems to be authentic. He has some amazing photography there that would lead you to believe this shot is the real deal.

Very nice image but it would be impossible to catch such a photograph. It is a composite of several images.

Looking east across the prairie, the composite of 8 consecutive exposures each 30 seconds long captures the flash of lightning and a bright Perseid meteor.
