Early Perseids Over the White Pine Range by Fort Photo on Flickr.Via Flickr:The Perseid Meteor Shower has arrived!  Here we see some early Perseids and probably some other meteors not related to the shower looking towards the shower radiant in the east. You can also very clearly see the Andromeda Galaxy and the Seven Sisters/Pleiades as well thanks to the very low light pollution in this portion of Nevada.  This was taken in Humboldt National Forest outside of Ely on our way back from a family reunion.  
The shower will peak on the nights of August 11-12 and/or August 12-13. Try the nights before and after that as well, as you can see from above you can see Perseid Meteors right now!  My friend and fellow flickrite David Kingham has written an excellent guide on preparing to photograph the meteors, see here:  www.davidkinghamphotography.com/blog/2013/7/photograph-th…
