Perseid Meteor Shower

Submitter: Chen Xie
Description: Annual Perseid Meteor Shower! This year, I am finally living in the middle of nowhere to see the famous meteor shower.

Last weekend, summer students and their supervisors were coming outside, enjoying the free music from Dwingeloo, and watching the Perseid meteor shower. Thanks to the dust left on the orbit of Comet Swift-Tuttle, we got a nice meteor shower, including fireballs!

Here is the picture of Dwingeloo telescope with bright falling star and Andromeda Galaxy.
