perseid meteor shower

[posted: ]  [0 comments]

a few days late, i found out that last weekend was the great perseid meteor shower (german link) weekend.

what’s funny about the image that’s provided under this link (similar to this one), is that there are acuatlly only two meteors visible* – everything else is just the apparent “rotation of the stars” (due to the rotation of the earth).
to make it seem more spectacular, they just don’t answer questions that most people wouldn’t ask…
* there’s one meteor in the photo that i link to

this is what a “realistic photo” should look like: 1 2 3
