A British photographer is sharing stunning views of the Leonid meteor shower that he captured from his garden.
Nick Lucas snapped the spectacular images from his home in Dorset, England between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Saturday, November 19th.
“There is a composite of the meteor frames; a star trail that is all 139 frames,” Lucas tells South West News Service.
The Leonids are a prolific annual meteor shower associated with the comet Tempel–Tuttle. Known for their fast, bright meteors, the Leonids get their name from the location of their radiant in the constellation Leo: the meteors appear to radiate from that point in the sky.
