Last night (12th Aug) saw the height of the Perseid Meteor storm across the UK.

It also coincided with the passing over of the International Space Station (ISS).

All photo’s are taken using a cheap Digital SLR camera with a stock 18-55 lens, this does mean that there’s a bit more noise than I would have liked in the pics but I’m not buggering around in the dark with decent kit so the photos are what they are.

Saying that, they’ve not come out bad, the observations of the ISS were shot at 21:24 using ISO100 F18 and a 30 second exposure time, the later shots were done using f5(ish) and ISO 200. Some of the later shots not featuring the ISS were experimental

If you’d like to learn more about the International Space Station (ISS) and when it is visible where you are (in the UK) check out the Meteor Watch web site.
