Perseids 2023 observations from Taurus Hill Observatory

Posted by & filed under , .

A few meteors, possibly belonging to the Perseids, were captured by THO’s allsky camera. These meteors must have been fireballs in brightness to leave the old visible in the allsky camera image. The sky was still quite bright and the protective dome of the camera is a little dirty from the summer. The sky was not completely clear at THO, but there was some fog at night due to the humidity. In the two images, the bright object visible in the eastern direction is Jupiter.
