Composite images of 2015 Perseid meteor shower


Every year we observe large number of meteor showers totaling over 20,000 meteors. Perseid meteor shower is probably the most observed shower, mainly thanks to nice August temperatures people venture outside to enjoy this spectacular nature show. Second year in a row UKMON was fortunate to observe Perseid meteor shower and bring it to our screens worldwide but unfortunately most of our cameras were clouded out shortly after midnight. Still we managed to record good numbers of meteors and we prepared these composites from each camera. Each image includes about 50 meteors on average captured only duration of the peak night.
