The Perseids of 2009 put on a nice show. The above image is a composite
of seven selected exposures with brighter
meteors from a time range of about one hour. The total number of meteors
found in this field of view and a time range of three hours is 34.
The common direction of the meteors is due to their radiant in the
constellation of Perseus. Only the small meteor at the right is
obviously not a Perseid.
Closer inspection shows that the photographic color of most Perseids
was a strong green. Only the brightest turned to a red tinge at the end.
