Spectacle at Joshua Tree

15-211

Image Credit & Copyright: Sean Parker.

Rolling right along in my personal 2015 Perseid Meteor Shower favorites is this incredible catch from Sean Parker while in Joshua Tree National Park. This image was captured on August 8th and knowing that new moon week wasn’t until the following week, this is a great illustration of the strength of this particular shower as the Moon was still 30% illuminated at the time.

For those of you that may not know what Joshua Tree National Park is, it’s definitely worth learning about and of course, go visit! It’s a nearly 800,000 acre region of the California desert near Twentynine Palms and is home to some of the most beautiful desert landscapes you will ever see. Not only that, it’s a favorite for night sky photographers in the region.

I hope you all enjoy this great image from Sean and if you do go visit his pages for other great imagery. Get out there and visit our national parks, protect our national parks and protect our night skies.
