"Orionid Meteors Over Glacier Park

On the opening day of Montana's hunting season, I bagged 35 meteors between moonset (04:00) and dawn (06:30). All catch and release, of course, as documented in this composite image. Most meteors traced back towards Orion the Hunter, marking them as likely Orionid meteors — dust from Halley's Comet. Mountains in the middle are (left to right) Heavens Peak, McPartland Mtn. and Mt. Vaught, all in Glacier National Park.
