Perseid meteor

Perseid meteor - Meteors
This was a hard earned shot during the 2010 Perseid meteor shower. Cloud had obscured the skies on the run up to and the peak night of the annual perseids, which is usually one of the best showers of the year. This one is from the morning of the 11th August when i had almost given up and packed the camera gear and tripod away only to see a clearance arrive an hour later. Decided to give it one last go and was rewarded with this beauty. Estimated to be magnitude -3 or -4 and looked amazing visually.
