If you want to punish an astronomer or astrophotographer, you send him to Luxembourg :-P
Last night, I tried to improvise a shooting of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower during a brief clearance of the sky view ... from an apartment ... in front of a streetlight (yes, that's the bright flare on the left :p ) ... Not the ideal conditions and location but I saw 3 shooting stars with the naked eye. Still, I was not able to catch any on a picture.
I still like this blurry one quite a lot though ...
The meteor shower is peaking now and the sky will be teeming with activity over the weekend. If you have clear skies over your head, keep an eye up there ;-)
