The Perseids at Maryhill Stonehenge by djniks97 The Perseids at Maryhill Stonehenge by djniks97

August 11, 2012.

The Maryhill Stonehenge and the Milky Way during the Perseids meteor shower.

The Maryhill Stonehenge is a full-size, astronomically-aligned replica of the original Stonehenge in the UK. It was dedicated as a memorial to those that died in World War I. The Perseids are an annual meteor shower associated with the comet "Swift-Tuttle". During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches more than 60 per hour.

The memorial was lit up in red by the brake lights of a vehicle. Saw the light and immediately pressed the trigger!

Nice. I was literally up there that same day, but did not think to watch the Perseids from there.

I love the bit about the brake lights. When I saw this, I assumed you'd just used a gel.

Thank you! There were an average of about 20 people in the night watching the Perseids. The sky was extremely clear. I use some gel to get a blue effect, but I preferred the red.

We were up in the mountains to watch the sky. So clear out there. We sort of assumed there would be light pollution in the Gorge from Portland. Maybe next year!
