Looking for the Perseids Before 13-August-2015

On Saturday morning on August 8, 2015, I went to planning for the next meteor shower most famous of the year, known as the Perseids, which peak it will be dawn on August 13.

Between clouds, wind and a little dedication to extract light pollution and extract details, I managed to illustrate the radiant point, where will the event next week and seeing that the weather forecast is bad, I think I was right to leave. At least I could see eight meteors which one of them was captured by the sensor.

I leave this animation so that they can guide those who have the chance to see them in clear and clear skies.

Best regards,

NGC 3576 - “The Statue of Liberty Nebula"

NGC 3576 is an emission nebula located in the constellation Cariana. It has many names, but best known by its popular name of “The Statue of Liberty Nebula". This is from the distinctive shape that can be seen in the middle of the nebula. However, I see something that looks more like a huge Galactic Fountain in Sagittarius arm of our galaxy.
