On Monday, August 9, 2021, NASA published an image called "Perseus and Lost Meteors". Its authors are the Slovak astrophotographer and astronomer popularizer Tomáš Slovinský and the Czech astrophotographer Petr Horálek from the Institute of Physics in Opava. The unusual composite image, which took both authors hundreds of hours of work, draws attention to the oncoming maximum of the annual meteor shower Perseida and the problem of light pollution, which makes the meteor swarm increasingly difficult to observe.
