While shooting the starry sky with Saturn and Jupiter, all of the sudden a Perseid meteor entered the scene right in the middle of the Pegasus square. Constellations from left to right: Andromeda, Pegasus, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius. Planets Saturn and Jupiter at right near the Teapot stars of Sagittarius. Mars was just above the horizon in the east but still in the glow of the Port of Antwerp and therefore not visible on this pano.

If you want a lay-out with the constellation lines, I will do but I am getting tired with the poor quality of the 500 pixel skies that need a lot of height to shine.

Very nice and interesting, and well done of course.

Ein Wunder, dass bei der Lichtverschmutzung überhaupt Sterne zu sehen sind.
Ich hoffe, du hast wir was gewünscht, und der Wunsch ist in Erfüllung gegangen.

Lucky you ! my camera was working 1,5h continuos during the peak of the shower and caught just 7 bright stones with 24mm focal length.
