Well the Scottish weather played it’s part once again by being nice and clear all afternoon and evening then as night fell it became completely overcast. The Pereid shower goes on for nearly a month so maybe I’ll get some clear skies over the next few days.
You’ll just have to make do with a photo from the 2009 shower. I was working the next morning so couldn’t drive far enough to get right out of the street light glow, and a car drove past with it’s headlights blazing just to annoy me further but you get the idea! By the time I took this exposure the temperature of the camera and lens had obviously hit the dew point and it was starting to fog up slightly! There’s actually 3 meteors in this image but two of them are really dim. As always, best to click the image to get a bigger version.
