The sky is falling "Snowy Range Perseid Meteor Shower" by David Kingham of the U. was "highly commended" in the Earth and Space category. Kingham combines 23 individual stills to convey the excitement and dynamism of August's Perseid meteor shower.
Night sky watcher William Berry sent in a photo of a Perseid meteor at Slide Mountain over Washoe Valley, NV. He says the image is a wide angle stack of about 1 hour, 30 second exposures, and he brightened the meteor trail a bit.
