Here is a picture from last night. Unfortunately it is a bit out of focus. My wide lens is f4 i.e. not ideal for this type of photography.
NEXT MORNING: Unfortunately there was no stable connection to do much blogging and it was more cloudy than the weather app wanted to admit. It was still an amazing experience! I will post some pictures later but there was too much light pollution and my camera lens was too slow to make a beautiful time lapse.
Just arrived at Beachy Head and set up the camera. It’s beautiful. We already counted ten shooting stars. What a night! Hopefully we can get you some beautiful pictures and a time lapse!
Getting on the road now. Should be at Beachy Head by 11pm BST. Just did a Facebook live video, here.
Tonight (August 12, 2016) will be one of the best nights to view the Perseid Meteor Shower in years. I am taking my camera to shoot a time lapse from Beachy Head and I will try to do some live streaming and certainly as much live blogging as possible.
I will hopefully head out by 10PM BST (2PM PST / 5PM EST) and will update this page throughout the night.
