Perseids

Last night it was clear, and we went outside after 11pm to look up at the Perseids, and hey presto, we saw lots of meteor streaks! It’s the first time I have seen multiple meteors: they happened every minute or two, some were long spectacluar streaks of light (it’s the ‘afterglow’), and some were shorter, almost like seeing a bird flying across the sky! Most of the streaks came from the North East, heading South West, but one or two came from different angles.

We also saw two satellites travelling across the night sky.
