Perseid Meteor Shower – viewed from my home, one aspect of my sky view. Cassiopeia to Capella and as many stars as I could see in between. 53.2000°N, 6.1000°W Bray Co Wicklow Ireland Bortle Dark Scale 4 A composite sketch created between July 28th and August 10th in mixed conditions from my garden. One observation from Sligo, similar conditions. My town street lights are partly screened by tall trees , the view to the N / NE and over head was dark. The Double Cluster was visible naked eye and M 31 visible with averted gaze. The Milky Way had visible knotted areas overhead on August 9th and 10th Some stars are sketched brighter than they appear to stand out for the photograph of the sketch which was too big to scan. The meteors are as close to what I saw in length and colour as is possible. Pastel Conte and White Gel Pen on Black Mounting Board 1.
