Perseid Meteor the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy Ramshaw Rocks, Staffordshire, U.K.

It's hard to describe the feeling when you take a shot that really is one in a million. I amazingly had that at 1.35 this morning when I was out at the Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks shooting the stars and literally shot a shooting star. Here then is the shot - of an exceptionally bright Perseid meteor right in the middle of the frame in front of the Milky Way with the Andromeda Galaxy also visible too.
