Perseids 2022


Recommended Posts

Did anyone get to see the Perseids over the weekend?  Spent an hour after midnight on Friday and saw 15+  Most of them were very bright and some left impressive vapour trails. Went out on Saturday for half an hour after midnight but only saw 2 and both were bright. Not too bad considering the brightness of the moon and the fact I'm only 8 miles east of Manchester.

I was tucked up in bed although the rigs were imaging at the time last weekend.


I remember the first time I saw meteors back in 1985 whilst on holiday in Portugal around this time of the year so probably the Perseids. The sky was really dark, unlike Manchester skies where I still live, the meteors appeared briefly and then was able to catch the odd satellite from the balcony of the place I was staying.
