*** WATCH THIS FULL SCREEN IN 720p HD FORMAT! ***
Timelapse footage of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower in August. The slow, horizontal lights are airplanes. The brief, vertical streaks are the meteors. Many are faint so you'll only see most of them if you follow the instructions above and view this in 720p HD and expand the video full screen. This footage is all from the Perseid Meteor shower in 2009.

To license Perseid Meteor shower footage, please note that I also have several minutes of footage from the Perseids in 2009 (http://youtu.be/vroLnrBhbmk) and
2010-2012 as well (http://youtu.be/6YOxo7uI8ns).

For other active meteor shower or science and astronomy footage consider:

I've written a blog post on my no-moon shooting technique:

You can also create a timelapse video from a sequence of night images:

Lastly, this is 100% real, 0% fake. Here in the Eastern Sierra region of California and Nevada where I live, we have very few people to produce light pollution, very dry, clear skies, and we can drive to elevations over 11,000 feet there there is less air and pollution to shoot through. These links to more of my night photography clearly demonstrate that I have no need to fake any of this: https://plus.google.com/photos/107459...
