On Tuesday the 11th August the BBC told me that the Persus meteor shower was occurring so about 10pm I nipped up toe Devils Dyke to get a better view. In my ignorance I had expected that I would be alone up there but I joined a train of cars trailing there way up the downs.
At the top there were plenty of people, fires were alight and bar-b-ques on the go. Some had tents and others just had camp beds under the starts. The sky was clear and we had a good view.
I hung around for about 45 minutes expecting to see a vague streak high up in the sky but when it came it was astonishing. A really bright and large fireball that seemed to whiz across the trees. Then later another. I’d taken a camera but had forgotten the adapter for my tripod and so my photography was limited.
I lay the camera on the ground and got this photo which appears to show a shooting star that I hadn’t noticed at the time.
I also got a fairly spooky looking photo of the moon and the grass.
