Perseids Meteor Shower Scratching Andromeda Galaxy above Montimerso in Dark Sky® Alqueva


| | |


Captured during an event with @darkskyalqueva and @montimerso Skyscape Country House, with a picnic under the stars to enjoy the Perseids meteor shower, the image features a composite of 11 bright meteors which crossed the sky during a two hours sequence of consecutive exposures. Luckily, one of the meteors fired near Andromeda Galaxy, the faint oblong shape seen in the upper right corner. In the middle of these scene feeling like a small sky party, is also visible the faint path of “winter Milky Way” with the Heart and Soul nebula shinning near the Double Cluster of Perseus, not far from the Radiant, the single point in the night sky where all these shooting stars seems to appear.


PT: Captada durante um evento entre o @darkskyalqueva e @montimerso Skyscape Country House, dedicado à chuva de meteoros das Perseidas, a imagem revela um composite de 11 meteoros brilhantes que cruzaram o céu ao longo de 2h durante uma sequência contínua de disparos. Felizmente, um dos meteoros disparou perto da Galáxia de Andrómeda, a forma oblonga vista no canto superior direito. No meio deste cenário com um feeling a sky party, também é visível o ténue caminho da “Via Láctea de inverno” com a nebulosa do Coração e da Alma brilhando perto do Aglomerado Duplo do Perseu, não muito longe do Radiante, ponto singluar no céu nocturno onde todos estas estrelas cadentes aparentam radiar.
