Astroclubul Bucuresti organized a successful astronomical expedition at a mountain retreat for the Perseid meteor shower event in August. The expedition took place between the 9th and the 14th of August in a low light pollution area, near the village of Malinis, in Brasov County, Romania. The participants, 18 members of our amateur astronomy association, engaged in visual meteor observations, deep-sky telescope observations, astrophotography, h-alpha solar observations and daytime recreational activities. The weather conditions were very good; we experienced 5 nights is a row with a clear night sky. The expedition was a success. Therefore, we plan on organizing a similar astronomy camp next year as well.
