The annual ‘Perseid Meteor Shower’ or ‘Perseids’ peak happens once per year, although once you have witnessed it the memory will stay forever! Each year I find myself planning ahead in excitement to potentially capture these shooting stars streaking through our atmosphere.
Every other year I tend to aim my camera at the Milky Way to capture the odd meteor streak past. However last night I aimed straight into the epicentre from where the “shooting stars” arrive from, which is the constellation Perseus. This photo is a combination of all the meteors I captured over a solid 2 hr period between 11pm-1am between 11th – 12th August. There was on average a bright meteor illuminating the sky every 10 mins or so, which was a very active sky!
It was a lonely but memorising few hours standing alone in the pitch dark of night but I am pleased to have made the effort last night. Especially because it has been heavily clouded & raining ever since! Weather conditions are set to worsen so it may have been the only few hours possible for me to capture the 2021 Perseid Meteor Shower over Ireland. It’s lucky moments like this that I’m grateful for amongst many other failed photography trips throughout the year ?
