Captured this meteor flash early this morning at 3:06am during the annual Perseid meteor shower. The weather forecast was not good but our “robo-cam” took advantage of a break in the cloud cover.

Crepuscular Rays

Saturday, June 30th, 2012 8:30pm EST

Crepuscular rays are rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from a single point in the sky, specifically, where the sun is. These rays, which stream through gaps in clouds (particularly stratocumulus) or between other objects, are columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed regions. The name comes from their frequent occurrences during crepuscular hours (those around dawn and dusk), when the contrasts between light and dark are the most obvious. Crepuscular comes from the Latin word “crepusculum”, meaning twilight.
