Perseid Meteor over Mangaia Island

By: Petr Horálek


Mangaia, The Cook Islands

2014 August 25-26


From the photographer: "Two dwarf galaxies, Magellanic clouds, and a shooting star from annual Perseid meteor shower, are just above the cliff of the south-east end of the runway of the Mangaia airport. Very low above horizon is bright star Canopus from constellation Carina, part of the mystic boat of the Noah. The meteor was really bright and like an unexpected intruder changed this composition to something very spiritual. As people say that Mangaia has soul, this image can confirm that."
