Milky Way Nightscape Scene Captured During Meteor Shower of Perseids

| | |

A nightscape scene reveals a mosaic of single shots where the Summer Milky Way shines high and bright against a starry night sky during Perseids meteor shower, above the mountains and lake of Dark Sky® Aldeias do Xisto – a certified Starlight Tourist Destination in the center of Portugal. In the background, Summer Triangle highlights the center of the image, while the dusty core of Milky Way galaxy is visible above the mountain range . On the center right, the two brightest stars above the moutain belongs to the giant Jupiter and Saturn. The best meteors captured during the shower and visible on the scene were star aligned with accuracy of a sub-pixel to help reveal the overall show with a composite of the Radiant, the single point in the night sky where all these shooting stars seems to appear.

Um cenário nocturno revela um mosaico de fotos individuais onde o caminho da Via Láctea de Verão brilha alto contra um céu nocturno estrelado durante a chuva de meteoros Perseidas, acima das montanhas e lago no Dark Sky® Aldeias do Xisto, no centro de Portugal – um Destino Turístico Starlight certificado no centro de Portugal. Ao fundo, o Triângulo de Verão destaca-se no centro da imagem, enquanto o núcleo empoeirado da Via Láctea é visível acima das montanhas. No centro à direita, as duas estrelas mais brilhantes acima da montanha pertencem aos gigantes Júpiter e Saturno. Os meteoros mais brilhantes captados durante a chuva e visíveis na imagem foram alinhados com a precisão de um sub-pixel para ajudar a revelar na composição, o Radiante, o único ponto no céu noturno onde todas essas estrelas cadentes aparentam aparecer.
