Startrails with Perseid Meteor, Penarth

Taken on the clifftop walk in penarth, looking out over the Bristol Channel towards Western-Super-Mare. 66 long exposures stacked together to give the star trails, guess which frame the meteor appeared on? 65!

The couple on the right stayed huddled together almost motionless for the duration.

The structure in the picture is a beacon which would have been lit to warn along the coast of invasion, the brightest trail to the right of it is the planet Jupiter.
