Watch this video……..and see one meteor!

Newbury Weekly News photographer Phil Cannings headed out to Donnington Castle last night (Wednesday) in search of the

Perseid Meteor but despite the clear sky, there wasn’t much of a showing. In fact, trying to capture the image of a meteor flying over head using  30 seconds exposure over a two hour period, he managed to capture just one. In this video, which shows plenty of planes flying overhead, a meteor can just be seen 6 seconds into the film, in the bottom right hand corner.
