Sky at Night - markhumpage
June 30/July 01 2011. Not only did this memorable clear sky evening produce a stunning star trail but also a bright meteor brushing past the Ursa Major (The Plough/Big Dipper) constellation. Bear in mind this is captured with a 8mm fisheye lens which ordinarily would produce a dim scratch for the average meteor. This was super bright. Bring on the August Perseids :-)
