A big thank you to all who turned up to the observatory to view the Perseids meteor shower. Although the moon was bright, we still saw some spectacular fireballs. There were a lot of happy campers. The Yagi radio telescope detector was a brilliant addition, the Perseids were causing an abundance of “Doppler” pings throughout the shower. Yagi even picked up the International Space Station (ISS) see image.
