|Where will the next Perseid meteor appear?
Sky enthusiasts who trekked outside for the Perseid meteor shower that peaked over the past few days

visible in the above stacked image composite, including one bright
fireball streaking along the band of the background Milky Way Galaxy.

visible from some dark locations during the peak.
