OMG, Come Up to Twin Peaks to See the Perseid Meteor Show Tonight! Here’s What It Will Look Like

Alls I know is that tonight, Saturday, August 11, 2012 will be your best chance all year to see a meteor shower.

What I don’t know is what the cloud / fog situation will be like, but you could see a lot of blue sky this AM so that bodes well.

Get the deets from Sarah Medina and UpOut.

Here’s what it will look like:

Oh wait, here’s the real deal, from Christmas Tree Road, a half-decade back, August 12th, 11:41 PM:

Canon 5D, 15mm 2.8 Fisheye, f/5.6, 5 seconds, ISO 1600

But people, you need to dress warm – gloves, beanies, etc and maybe a sleeping bag if you’re serious.

All right, see you there!

Shooting stars never stop/ even when they reach the top.

    I caught a picture with a Perseid meteor and the tower! (See website field)

    Sat night was too foggy, but Sun night was clear enough. I took 8sec exposures all night to capture this shot. I’m still going through the rest of the images to see if there’s a better ones.
