PERSEID METEOR, PLANET MARS, THE MILKY-WAY GALAXY AND SATELLITES
What a great night out last night watching our for Perseid meteors.
Myself and Noel Keating Photography saw around 40 in total between 10:30pm and 2:30am this morning but the milky way i have to say stole the show last night along with mars on the horizon.
In this shot a Perseid meteor can be seen at the top of the image along with two satellites. To the right hand side the Milky-way Galaxy can also be seen the Galaxy in which we live in. The bright planet visible is Mars which may would of spotted last night and will see again tonight
This area myself and Noel photograph from it the ideal area for Astro photography with not a whole lot of light pollution.

This is a rare enough image to capture its of 3 Perseid meteors in one shot during the meteor shower of 2015 at its peak.
This is a long exposure image took over the space of 30 seconds. To capture one in a shot is nice but to capture 3 one photo in the space of 30 seconds is a bonus.
Over the years I have notice with meteor showers is that when you see one shooting across the sky it is always followed by another a few seconds later.
I was lucky to have had clear sky's this night as many other where clouded out and to see my work on Uk, Irish and US news channels was a nice reward after the brilliant but long night.
If you have any clear sky's over coming nights leading up to the peak of the Perseid meteor shower get out looking as Perseid meteors will become more common leading up to the weekend.

A spell of heavy rain currently sits over the Connacht and west Munster at lunchtime.
This will spread to other parts of Ireland later this afternoon and will not reach eastern areas by late evening and tonight due to its slow movement.
Some areas may see a few isolated lightning strikes and rumbles of thunder as this advances across Ireland this this afternoon.
Very warm over the UK today with temperatures as high as 36C in South East England. Later in the afternoon severe Thunderstorms will develop in the east and northeast of England staying dry and sunny over Wales & Scotland.
