Mighty meteors fire up the desert sky

In the Perseid meteor shower of 2010, 54 meteors were detected by our 100N and 902H watec cameras.

The peak of the shower took place near dawn while our cameras were directed towards the radiant (the constellation of Perseus).

Thousands of eager Israelis joined scientific teams from Tel Aviv University to behold the spectacle.
