Perseid Meteor Shower, Britain - Aug 2015
Photographers across the UK have captured incredible pictures of the Perseid meteor shower as it reached its peak last night.
For the first time since 2007 the shower has coincided with a new moon, creating perfect viewing conditions in parts of the country which were not covered in cloud. The annual meteor shower can produce between 50 and 100 shooting stars per hour and is expected to put on another dazzling display tonight (Wed). Amateur photographer Peter Greig got an amazing photo of the perseids in the early hours of this morning (Wed) at Llanddwyn Island in Anglesey, Wales. "The conditions last night were perfect for meteor hunting. The new moon and crystal clear sky gave way to an amazing display," said Peter, 33, a salesman from Hartlepool. "This is one of, if not the best location I've photographed the milky way in the UK so far. There is very little light pollution which enables the camera to pick up better details in it's structure, especially close to the horizon."
