Only one hour of clear skies over my observing site, but enough to catch 8 meteors in the north-east. I made the sketch using a graphite pencil on white paper, digitally inverted at home.

Superb Roel ! A very lovely souvenir, with a well positioned radiant.
This very morning from 3:30 to 4:00 LT my ZHR count was 116 (a total of 11 meteors in 30 minutes).

Yes, superb. Once again here in the northeast US the Perseids were clouded out for most of us. I would have appreciated even that one hour...

Excellent work, Roel. I was hoping you'd get to do one of your wide field meteor sketches. :cool: Cloudy here so no Perseid watching.

OMG... Words fail me for this one. It's so... stunning, so live-like... I'd put this right up my wall. You're a TRUE artist. :bow:

TOTALLY agree with Peter's comments. It is definately art and not a sketch. It's a keeper for my album for talks at my astrosoc...
