Meteor Streak

Last night my son and I hopped in the car and travelled upstream of the Inniscarra dam on the River Lee around here where I hoped it would be fairly dark to shoot the Perseids meteor shower.

The sunset was lovely and I’ll be posting photos of that over the next few days but I was disappointed at the light pollution from Cork City on the clouds above. It was only by almost 2230 that the clouds moved away and more of the sky became visible.

I saw one meteor streak through the upper atmosphere to the north-north-east, while my son saw one almost overhead. Disappointing but we were getting tired so near 2300 I took a few photos of the sky. The very last photo I took was to the west and I liked how it looked but when I saw it on my laptop this morning I noticed the streak of a meteor at the top of the frame!

The photo was a 30 second exposure, f/4 at 2000 ISO.
