On the only clear night for a while I was hoping to catch one of the Perseid meteors but it was not meant to be so. So enjoy this dance of the clouds and stars around the North Star, Polaris. I shot from 10 pm to 2 am, 490 images before the batteries died, 1600 ISO with a very full moon, 25 second, f/3.5, 18 mm focal length.
