Tuesday nights outing was a mad dash up Bramford Edge. Clear skies were forecast so we headed out hoping to capture the Perseid meteor shower. Ofcourse you can never trust the weather forecast in the Peak District so we saw like 3 meteors, captured none and got swamped by cloud https://t.co/FElFAa3vL5
