Perseids over Crater Lake

My work this summer timed out just perfectly so that I was driving from Washington back to California on the peak nights of the Perseid meteor shower. I was able to stop in Oregon to watch the sky light up over Crater Lake, which was truly breathtaking. Only one of my shots actually caught a meteor (and it’s flanked by two airplane trails) but I loved the time watching and shooting.

  1. It is so breath taking. Is a meteor completely bursting, and what we see are fragments of it coming down? Are all those sparkling bits cooling and coming down to Earth, or dispersing into space? Was this going on happening as you drove along? How did you know to expect it?
