I subscribe to this site, which sends something pretty much every day. Most of it is astronomy, but it goes off into other topics in the sub-articles. Might be of interest, might be that people need less daily updates in our InBox.

Perseids I try to get out every year. Sometimes the Moon is a problem. Others clouds or other weather interference. I think I'm getting better at making the time lapse and will some day capture a meteorite.

It's pretty rewarding if you can capture meteorites, well for yourself, doesn't seem to have a big market for shots like that.
I have images and time lapses of meteorites, even with northern lights in the background, sales are disappointing to say at least ;D

Yes, it's in off topic for two reasons. One I don't even know if it would be accepted and two I don't know if they would sell.

I shoot for myself now. The challenge is a long term project, until I get a really nice shot that I like. Some years, no chance, clouds, rain, the Moon... In fact most years aren't that good.

I assume you are correct, and believe you, not much market.   :)

Probably best for Alamy - you could run them through the Alamy news channel if you upload them immediately.  Newspapers sometimes run meteorite pictures if there is a shower (though more than once I've seen them run star-trail pictures because apparently neither the photographer nor the sub editors know the difference between the two).

I've seen pictures of the night sky with a satellite crossing captioned as pictures of meteorites. Not at Alamy, but I haven't looked.

I had night shots with a passing plane in the background mistaken and rejected for hot pixels. LMAO  ;D

I'm not saying those pics were from Alamy - actually, they are quite likely to be archived at Getty because they were from major news agencies.

Another possibility is January 12-15, 2014 for meteorites from Comet ISON.

Perseids might be a problem this year because of the full moon August 10.
