Time-lapse from Perseid Meteor Shower | September 29, 2018

The Perseid meteor shower peaked in Colorado over the August 12 weekend in 2018. The annual meteor shower occurs when the Earth passes through a stream of dust from the Comet Swift-Tuttle. This time-lapse was taken on August 11 in Florissant, Colo. About once a month, the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument holds a Night Sky Program that allows visitors to stargaze with minimal light pollution.
