The nights of the perseids

The nights of the perseids

Quote This timelapse series is taken during the nights between 9th and 12th of August 2021 at the island "Utö" in the Stockholm archipelago (Sweden). The Perseids are a meteor shower associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The peak of the Perseids happened during the night between 12th and 13th of August. Utö was an ideal location for this as it's quite remote and far from bigger cities and thus has a very dark sky. This year there was no moon that interrupted either so conditions were fantastic. The milky way is clearly visible. Quote
