In this startrail captured from Bellino (Cn), Italy, I captured a bright meteor, which leaves a 3 minutes tail, as visible in this video:

Just after midnight on August 12, I captured more than 20 meteors, including a brilliant fireball, in about one and a half hours. They are all Perseid meteors, and each of them seems to be shooting toward the same point.

I'd like to point out that this anti-radiant effect is a consequence of using a wide angle lens, and where it was aimed. At this time, the radiant was above, so visually these meteors would generally be seen as diverging. However, since the radiant is behind the imager, we get the impression of convergence.

All meteor showers appear to diverge from their radiant, and converge on their anti-radiant, on the opposite side of the celestial sphere. Since the radiant is normally above the horizon, the anti-radiant is below it, and we seldom get a visual impression of convergence. This image shows that effect very nicely.

Actually, if the meteor trains are farther than 90 degrees away from the radiant, they will be closer to the anti-radiant and they will look like converging.

Seems like the Perseids have put on a nice show this year.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Please let you know, that the Perseid image is not mine, but Petr Horalek's. But I think, it's a pitty, that it wasn't an APOD for 2013 Perseids.

Thanks
