The October 2010 column describes methods for sketching and annotating a meteor shower observation. Also featured in the article were beautiful sketches of the Perseids by Roel Weijenberg and Juanchin. Unfortunately there was not enough room for Deirdre Kelleghan’s excellent sketch. All three are shown below. Thanks to Roel, Juanchin and Dee for allowing me to post them here.

  1. Jeremy,
    That is an awesome display of the different types of views each sketcher was able to portray. Individuality is clearly shown here along with with their art technique or style. Personally, I think you got something going on here by choosing to showcase other peoples sketches. I like your website even more so!
    Thanks again for exposing my sketch to the public.
    Dark and Clear skies to you!
    Juanchin
