    A short clip of the Perseid Meteor shower on August 12 2013. The cloud rolled in and killed it near the end but there is always later in the week.

      A short timelapse of the Perseid meteor shower over Wicken Fen. There were some truly amazing sights, some of which I didn't capture as I only had one camera running. Next time I think I might have several cameras running to capture all of it. And the usual lens fogging occurs at the end, putting an end to the shoot. Hand warmers (for the lens) on order...

          Unlike with last year's sequence of the Perseid shower ( https://vimeo.com/47501333 ) which was shot up at Mammoth Lakes (with relatively low light pollution), this year found me at home in Victorville, CA. Although it is up in the Southern California high desert, it is being developed rapidly and light pollution abounds. Nevertheless, I was able to get a decent sequence including what appears to be a meteor explosion with resulting shockwave and debris ring (at approx. 00:39). For a closer view of this explosion, see my other video at: https://vimeo.com/72228503 Stats for this sequence: Camera: Canon 7D Lens: Tokina 11mm-16mm/2.8 Exposure: 20sec Iso: 800 Aperture: 2.8 Focal Length: 11mm Interval: 22sec Video Frame Rate: 24fps

            A Super Typhoon, major flooding in the U.S. and Japan, heat wave for China and Europe and the little meteor shower that could.

              I got really lucky and captured what I believe to be a meteor explosion with a resulting, expanding shock wave or debris ring. UPDATE: After being fortunate to have Universe Today cross post my vid, I learned more about the phenomena recorded here. While this does show a meteor breaking apart, the resulting, expanding ring is called a "persistent train" and is NOT a debris ring. Rather, it is glowing gas - charged gas that has been heated by compression caused by the meteor and giving off electrons (similar to how a neon sign works). It happens fairly often but it isn't so regularly documented. http://www.universetoday.com/104149/incredible-footage-shows-a-perseid-meteor-exploding/ Because I shoot at much higher resolution than 720p, I was able to provide (2) sequences in this video: (1) is with the full frame of each capture scaled/reduced and then cropped down to 1280x720, and (2) the other is with the full frame kept at resolution with just the region around the explosion cropped to 1280x720. I included each sequence twice - once at 24fps and the other at around 12fps. Stats for this timelapse sequence: Camera: Canon 7D Lens: Tokina 11mm-16mm/2.8 Exposure: 20sec Iso: 800 Aperture: 2.8 Focal Length: 11mm Interval: 22sec Video Frame Rate: 24fps

                First star timelapse video I ever did, and was lucky enough to catch several meteors (one bright one) behind night clouds. Part of the Perseid meteor shower, which highlights in two days. Material of more than 2 hours of shooting. Best to watch in fullscreen mode.

                  Last night me and a group of friends went out to see the Perseid meteor shower. Although a couple meteors flew by almost none of them registered on my camera.

                      from Jeff Sullivan / Added

                      Timelapse footage of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower in August. The slow, horizontal lights are airplanes. The fast, vertical streaks are the meteors. The meteor shower footage in this video is all from the Perseid Meteor shower in 2009. I've also completed a new time-lapse video to cover 2010-2012 as well as other meteor showers such as the Orionid meteor shower in October, and I hope to complete on from the Geminid meteor shower in December as well.
