Catch a falling star ... and fall colors

Photographer Jeff Berkes' picture of an Orionid meteor streak over Elverson, Pa., also features autumn leaves.

"The sky was crystal clear and a moody fog was rising off the lake when I set up my camera at 1 o'clock Saturday morning," Berkes told "The Orionids were streaking bright, and I counted a couple dozen during the night."

If you miss seeing the falling stars of the fall season, you can experience them vicariously by checking And there's always another show on the horizon, such as the Geminids (peaking Dec. 13-14).
