Perseids - 13.8.2015 at 00.00 - 13.8.2015 at 02.30 Espoo Observation number 40827

Visibility III / V


The sky became clear as it had become the summit of Perseids, even though the early evening looked bad. I photographed a swarm of meteors between midnight and half past three, and I saw an estimated 40-50 star flight. 28 of these I got described. One particularly bright one appeared immediately after midnight in the southeast, leaving behind a fading wadding. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of it. I'll probably add pictures later.
