Gimli Glider Exhibit

Opening officially on July 23rd, 2017 the Gimli Glider Exhibit celebrates one of the long-remembered moments in Aviation history- the historic landing of a jumbo jet carrying 69 passengers and crew which had run out of fuel north of Winnipeg Manitoba.

Perseids meteor shower in Arborg, Manitoba – Canada

It is hard to get up at 1.30am when you are on holiday, but the extra effort is always rewarding.

I could not shoot on peak, and on the 14th I had a tight gap of darkness between moon set and twilight, but this still gave me a good 1.5hrs. It was quite misty, but the sky was clear. My only worry was that the lens will fog-up, which it did in the last frames, so I was lucky.

There where not much Perseids meteors, but a lot of faint, sporadic ones. As last year in Malta, the airglow made the sky look green. Apart from the darkest skies I have seen in years, for me the highlight was the Aurora activity far up North on the horizon…. you won’t see that from Malta!
