Looking to the heavens for the Perseid meteor shower

Clear skies at the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station on Mauna Kea Thursday night (Aug 12) for good stargazing and the Perseid meteor shower. Photo by Baron Sekiya | Hawaii 24/7

A group of meteors leave squiggly trails as the stars form pinpoints in the background.

A meteor streaks across the sky over the Mauna Kea during the Perseid meteor shower.
