College photography professors Donna Cosentino and Judith Preston watch a Persied meteor streak through the starry sky above California’s Anza Borrego Desert State Park on Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015. The orange glow is from the lights of Salton City, about 10 miles away. Scores of the “shooting stars” were observed during the annual skyshow when Earth passed through interplanetary matter from an orbiting comet. (Don Bartletti/Los Angeles Times/TNS)
