It’s time to watch a meteor shower

Several short white streaks in a dark sky.
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Bass Seckin in Bursa, Turkey, captured these meteors on July 29 and wrote: “Bursa, in northwestern Turkey, has a population of 3 million. It’s almost impossible to see meteors there.I went 100 kilometers (60 miles) eastward … Interestingly I had seen only 1 or 2 meteors with the unaided eye, but when I checked frames, I saw there were 4 to 6 meteors on a single frame. The reddish spot at the center of the image is Mars, and Delta Aquariid meteors’ traces are from the upper-right corner toward the bottom.” Thank you, Bass!
