Observing meteors can be fun. Observers lie down in a circle and scan the sky for perseid meteors at the Meteor Camp 2020, southern Germany. European folklore says, you have a wish on seeing a shooting star. But don't tell anybody!
The six shown meteors were from two nights in mid of august. The mosaic is a "little planet" projection of 14 wide angle images covering the entire sphere plus 6 images with found meteors (carefully aligned with the stars).
