Some of the birthrights Perseids that I managed to capture this year on the day of the showers maximum intensity. This years observation were hindered by almost fully illuminated Moon that washed out dimmer meteors.
Sight at the horizon revealed quite a strong airglow activity. In the photos it is visible as green (purple) light near the horizon. It should not be confused with strong orange light that is a result of a light pollution.
Here are some of the brightest Perseid meteors that I was able to capture.
This year’s maximum of the Perseids meteor shower was very favourable for observing. With no moon and clear weather we were able to photograph and visually observe meteors for several consecutive days. Here are some pictures of the best and brightest meteors caught.
