Perseid

Every year on or about 12 August, the earth barges its way through the debris left behind by comet Swift/Tuttle. The result is a spectacular meteor shower know as the Perseids (because of the apparent location from which the meteor trails appear to originate, in the constellation of Perseus). Also, around the same time, cloud cover almost always prevents me from seeing them. This year I went out early to try and catch a few on camera – two days early.

Rufus and I managed to see a couple and I’ve uploaded a couple of pictures below. I’ve also included an image of a satellite and a plane passing overhead.
