Details:
A single Perseid meteor streaks from the radiant point over the Cypress Hills in southwest Saskatchewan, on the peak night of August 12, 2018. The sky was very hazy with smoke from forest fires in BC, reducing transparency tremendously.

The location was Lookout Point in the Centre Block of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, SK. Several other photographers and observers were here this night.

The horizon lights, made more visible by the smoke, are from Maple Creek to the north of the Park.

The view is northeast toward Perseus, Cassiopeia, Andromeda and Pegasus.

This is a stack of 8 untracked images for the ground and 8 tracked images for the sky, each mean combined to smooth noise, and a layer with the meteor blended in with lighten mode. All 30 seconds at f/1.8 with the 14mm Sigma Art lens and Nikon D750 at ISO 6400.
