Window on Orion – Looking Across Loch Sunart from Rockpool House, Resipole, Sunart

In the hours before sunrise on the 21st October 2017, the Orionids Meteor Shower was at its peak. Unfortunately, the sky was filled with clouds for most of the time, apart from about an hour from about six in the morning when it cleared and Orion’s Belt became visible. This gave is the chance to see the meteors streak across the sky, albeit for far too a brief period.
