Follow photographer, Charles Bergquist as he takes a trip out to Joshua Tree for the Perseid meteor shower. The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity between 9 and 14 August, depending on the particular location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour.
Outback Australia. We wanted to go because we didn’t know what was out there. So we jumped in a car from Adelaide and headed North. A lot can happen when six people from different walks of life head to the middle of nowhere.

“Get down! You are in GRAVE DANGER!” a faraway voice yelled over a loudspeaker. I looked inland to see the red-blue flash of police lights as we hurried down the icy bank toward our vehicle. Luckily the officer wasn’t there when we arrived and drove to the end of the peninsula covered in ice. I was hyperaware of the lake water on either side of us, and of inescapable doom if we misstepped and fell in.
