One hour, eight Perseids new

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. 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.

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...
