Perseid Meteor Roundup

The Perseid Meteors are over for another year. But their legacy lives on. The peak ZHR was around 100 meteors per hour, and the Perseids left lots of memorable images. Starting with this excellent timelapse video of Perseids at the Joshua Tree National Park by photographer Henry Jun Wah Lee (hat tip Bad Astronomer).

Then, from Astronomy Picture of the Day comes Night of the Perseids, Perseid Storm and Meteors over Quebec. Finally, a great composite image from Singapore, a nice video of the maximum, and an amazing fireball.
