These photos were taken during the Perseid meteor shower between 12:30 and 4 a.m.

Conditions look good for this year’s Perseid meteor shower, though the event may be hampered by wildfire season in the Pacific Northwest.

11 to 13, according to the American Meteor Society, when viewers should be able to see about 50 meteors per hour under clear, dark skies.

While the brightness of the moon won’t be a big issue this year (there will be a waxing crescent moon Aug. 12), the meteor shower could be obscured by either clouds or smoke from ongoing wildfires across the region.

Conditions have improved as recent wildfires wind down, but as the threat of fire still looms, so does the possibility that smoke could obscure the best meteor shower of the year.
