I tried to note Perseids during the maximum.
Me and my fiancee – Anna – went into the any dark place in the Nowy Sącz city. Our place was not too good, but we did not have much choise. We had a some problem with two bright lights. And a big problem with big, bright moon 🙂
In an one hour we have succeeded to cath seven bright metors.

First sketch is a template made with Stellarium. Tamplate was printed. On this template we sketched the meteors.
The second version is similiar to the look from our observing place.

    A fine looking sketch that captures the event and the look of your view.
    Well done.

  2. Aleksaner,

    this idea of using Stellarium as a template is very well thought!
