And some reds. And blues. And... So I went out to photograph the Delta Aquarids meteor shower last night. It weren't 'zackly meteor weather but I'm happy with my night out!

The ISS made an appearance.

Orion rising

The lightning sparked a brush fire but the borate bombers knocked it down pretty quickly.

I appreciate the kind words, everyone. The Perseid meteor shower peaks in about a week and a half and hopefully I'll be able to repeat.
