A lucky meteor at Perth Observatory

A lucky meteor at Perth Observatory.

Recently hosting a tour at Perth Observatory I was snapping a few pics as I do, mostly to get some more marketing material to assist the observatory. I found this one in subsequent days which features a nice bright meteor low on the southern horizon! Not bad catch for a night that ended up 2/3 cloudy.

The photograph also features southern night sky targets including Eta Carina, Southern Cross, Coal sack and both Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
