Perseid meteor shower puts on a sky show
GOLDEN, Colo. — The Perseid meteor shower put on its annual August show this weekend.
The photo above was shot facing north in Golden Gate Canyon State Park at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, August 11.
If you look to the right of the Milky Way in the center of the photo, you’ll see a green streak — that’s a meteor!
The Perseid meteor shower can be seen as Earth passes through a stream of debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet. The best viewing happened this past weekend.
FOX31 Denver vice president of technology David Harpe took the photograph.
