Perseid Meteor Shower Timelapse


After my attempt the previous night to get some photos of the Perseid Meteor Shower (see here) I thought that last night I might have better luck going somewhere with more open skies.

I took my trusty camera and tripod to the Carrs, a big park in the middle of my town with plenty of open sky. I was really hopeful when I arrived – the sky was clear, the sun was just setting and everything looked beautiful. At about midnight there was an absolutely beautiful meteor which really lit up the sky and left a trail for a good 20 seconds, but I didn’t get it on camera! :/ In the end I didn’t manage to get as many good shots as I wanted to (all of which are below, it’s a big post!) but I did get a couple. I’ve put them all together into this quick timelapse video 🙂

I took the one below by accident, and thought it looked kind of spooky!
