I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all.
I love you in the winter, summer, spring and in the fall.
I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore.
I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.
I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars make me dream.
Point pelee national park often known as one of the smallest national park located in Southwestern Ontario, southmost point of mainland Canada.
Point pelee recognized as one of the better places for stargazing in Ontario having enough dark sky and stunning open spaces & beach towards south which makes it even better. The places around Point Pelee national park might have some light pollution but rural locations away from the city of Leamington would give a pleasure to watch night sky just like this photo here. Enjoy these stunning stargazing experience right above your head if you’re curious enough.

In 1994, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake rumbled through Los Angeles at 4:30 a.m. The shaking woke residents, who discovered the power had gone out citywide. They looked up at the sky. It was filled with cosmic bodies that had been invisible up to that point. they reported the police that they saw a large silvery cloud that trailed over the city. That cloud was the Milky Way. They had never seen it before.
I managed to capture some of the Perseid meteor shower tonight from the heart of Ulster in the Sperrin Mountains!
Last time I posted an astro image I was asked for a little more explanation of what it was so if you're interested keep reading!
August 11th and 12th are the peak nights for the Perseid meteor shower where the Earth passes through the debris left behind by comet Swift-Tuttle. What you're seeing are the light streaks left as the debris burns up in the atmosphere and also some passing satellites.
If you look closely you'll also see M31, the Andromeda Galaxy as a small object near the middle right of the image.
Finally, at the bottom you'll see the foreground lit up by a passing car!
