Sky at Night - markhumpage
July 14/15th 2011. An opportunity for Noctilucent clouds (NLC) and meteors. NLC have been spotted over recent nights and we are approaching Perseids meteor time of the year. What is becoming a rare clear night summer sky I set out with high hopes. Inevitable disappointment, however I did manage a half decent star trail and catch a nice meteor (see next image). Captured with Oly E5 & 7-14mm. Approx 900 exposures stacked for this one.
