Description

We had a perfectly clear night on Tuesday for the start of the Perseid Meteor shower. If you watch closely, you can pick out at least ten meteors. They're quick and faint, but they're there. There was also a fantastic pass by Tiangong-1, the Chinese space station. Several other Satellites make great passes throughout the night.
