The increase in
meteor activity of this normally weak shower was predicted to
reach possible storm levels when the earth passed into the debris
trail of the Comet Keiss, the progenitor of this annual event.
The moon was nearly full, turning the entire sky a bright blue
color and diminishing the faintest meteors. We did however get
three metors in our camera, which was the first dark sky tests
as well for the new Sigma 8mm f/3.5 fish eye lens.
Two images of each frame
are presented. The first is the entire all sky frame, and the
second a zoom in on the meteor in that frame.
