A time-lapse movie made from my amateur astronomy club's (CALA) observatory, in France, during the night when the famous Perseid meteor shower reached its peak this year - that is, 12-13 august, 2013. Too bad I had no sound record of our awe at seeing every single shooting star (and there were dozens)!

The frames were shot with a Canon EOS 40D camera equipped with a lens set at a 10mm focal length. I assembled them with a small and cheap Mac OS X software, Time-Lapse, with 2-frame tweening for better seeing of the shooting stars.
