Perseid Meteor Shower & Milky Way over the “UTV Television Broadcasting Tower” in Strabane, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
This TV mast stands just a few miles from my home. It is known and respected by the folk in Strabane & surrounding areas. If you live in our town & are returning home from a trip, it’s always the first thing you see on your return! It may be an old iron reception tower to the onlooking stranger but to us it’s the symbol of our stunning little town of Strabane & its red glowing lights will always guide you home safely
The weather conditions here were almost perfect with no moon or high clouds up until near midnight, such a beautiful moment to see all the shooting stars with the naked eye every few moments. The Perseid Meteor Shower only happens once per year although once you have witness it, the memory will stay with you forever….
