Perseidit - 14.8.2015 at 01.00 - 14.8.2015 at 02.30 Mäntyharju Observation number 40920

Visibility III / V

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The second night The asses were better. The sky was cloudless and in a couple of hours I saw a dozen meteors. However, the night clouds that appeared at the same time took my attention elsewhere.

1. at 1.39 Perseidi flashes on the right, the only hit

2. at 2.20 the night sky to the east

3. at 2.22 the constellation of Perseus, the "source" or radiant of these meteors.

A few recorded meteors

-01.01 clear in Lyra

-01.06 dim in Otava

-01.19 bright short Driver

-01.20 bright in Perseus, about 5 seconds of smoke

-02.00 south at 20 degrees long

-02.12 dim in Perseus
