From Nadeeja about this image:

Knowing that this weekend was the Perseids peak, I headed out to Joshua Tree to view it. I knew the moon would be a huge factor in visibility, and so, I didn’t plan on taking photos of the meteors. Not having an intervalometer, amongst other things, I wasn’t well suited to attempt them anyways. I arrived at my location around 8:30 PM, and the sun had already set. With a nice dark window before the moon would begin rising, I started to take some photos of the Milky Way. I finished a few exposure for a stacked image, and then I begun doing some longer ones for the foreground.
It was at that moment my jaw had dropped. A huge meteor begun falling down, and it was happening very slowly. I was watching in awe. It descended from the sky so peacefully, catching fire at its final moments before vanishing. Out of sheer luck, my camera was pointed directly at it, and the shutter was open for the foreground long exposure. Once I finished the exposure, and saw this in on my screen, I was beyond stoked! Unplanned, and simply out of luck, I caught a beautiful meteor complimenting the Milky Way.
