Perseid Meteor Shower 2013

Article header_simple

The past weekend had a great celestial show of the Perseid Meteor Shower. The number of meteors was in a healthy amount. There was nearly one meteor a minute in the place I stargazed in. There were few fire balls as well, and some of them split in to two as they entered the atmosphere. Few light up the sky for a second or more.

Many shots were taken by the camera in the past two nights, with little luck to show the faint small meteor on the photo, however, in the last three pictures I took before I called it a night, a lucky shot capture a very beautiful bright Fire ball.  Enjoy.
