Perseid Meteor

by club member Alan Tough
This was the best Perseid meteor I captured during the week. Well okay, it was the only one! The image was taken from Hopeman Beach at just after midnight on Wednesday (10 August) morning.

There was also a weak aurora visible (first of the season) and, earlier, some faint Noctilucent Clouds (last of the season).
