A meteor trail from the August, 2016, Perseid Meteor shower streaks past a line of boulders at a dark site in the Mojave Desert. This 30 sec exposure is one of several that managed to capture a shooting star while running most of the night with an intervalometer.

The bright stars of the Pleiades cluster are visible higher up in the frame.
