  • for me, I quite like taking a few pictures of the Milky Way now and again whilst out camping in the hills, it's super dark out there so I use that to my advantage. When meteor showers present ...
  • I didn't know there was a whole world dedicated to capturing these :-O
  • Yep, I've already named it 'Izzy', the Iridium Flare :-D
  • I'm not going to venture out tonight, I hope you have some luck if you end up having a look out. Last night was only the second time I'd attempted meteors, I'll keep a look out for the next decent ...
