Late last night we drove from Dallas to Denison, Texas to view the Camelopardalid meteor shower. Early Saturday morning (1-3 AM CDT) would mark the first occurrence of this event and some observers predicted as many as 100 shooting stars per hour. Unfortunately, the predictions were wrong; we only saw about three in the two hours we were there. Regardless, it was a great opportunity to teach my oldest niece a bit about astronomy and photography. Only one shot below features a faint shooting star. Hopefully I can capture more stunning images during the Perseids in August.
