Larne, Northern Ireland
I was taking a few widefield images of the Pegasus region and found that one of the frames contained two moderately faint Perseid Meteors. I had earlier spotted a mag -2 Perseid headed in the direction of the Big Dipper but the camera was pointed elsewhere at the time! This is a crop of the original frame - the bright star below center left is Hamal. Photo taken with Sony DSLR-A700 - 15 secs ISO800 with 16mm lens at f3.5
