2009 Perseid Meteor Shower in the Colorado Rockies

I trekked up Cameron Pass to enjoy the peak of this annual treat of an astronomical event and got away with some keepers, even with the moon! I can only imagine how bright this nice fireball meteor would have been under a moonless sky. I saw 69 Perseids total between 10 pm - 3:30 am MST.
