    Cool. I'm headed down to St. Simmons Island (little light pollution) early tomorrow... Weather report says clear skies. Perhaps I'll try to capture a few.

    I'll probably be just in my front yard. We're far enough in the country we don't have much light pollution :o Can't wait to see the pictures everyone comes up with :cool:

    wow. i didn't even realize.

    Last night, the 11th, I shot pictures of the sky, and was near missouri's Lake of the ozarks which is out in the country. Anyway, i was a little drunk and bored so i set up the D80 with a tripod and took some long exposures. I did see some meteors while waiting for the time to go by, but didn't think that it was a meteor shower. Yes i know the big one is supposed to be tonight, but it was still cool. Anyway, I got some cool star streaks pictures. Where the camera was pointed there was a meteor but it was quick and dim.

    What's the best way to try to take pictures of meteors? long exposure?
    first one got the camera slightly bumped about 5 mins into it. [​IMG]

    Was perfect out at Billy Chinook! Though I could barely move after driving and taking other pics all day, so I just set up my camera on timer capture and did a time lapse. Dunno if I got anything but what I saw with my eyes was awesome.
