Well, it wasn't much of a shower - more like a trickle. But it was amazing standing under the bright Milky Way. I did manage to capture a faint one. I saw about 15-20 total over the course of three hours.

This was taken at Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania - one of only two dark sky parks in the U.S.
