There's going to be a very large meteor shower tonight. Supposed to be the biggest and brightest in recorded history.

This should be pretty cool, if you're into that sort of thing.

I was up at my camp (closest electric light is 20 miles away) a week ago. I was stargazing with my son and we saw 5-6 shooting stars and the last one was was spectacular and went a long way across the sky. Up there, you can start to get an idea about how many stars are out there. There were so many (visible) and so much starlight, you could have read by their light.

Yep! Cloudless sky in Ohio today, so I'm just getting ready to head out in the backyard and stoke up the fire pit. Grabbing a few cold ones, a cigar, and my iPad for tunes. Should be a good one.

Thinking about climbing up on the roof tomorrow and strapping the GoPro to the chimney and set it for an all night time lapse.
Supposed to be another sunny day tomorrow.

It's clear in memphis, these don't happen at a particular time do they?

** I guess at night. Dumb question :420:
This one was supposed to be heavy enough to see some during the day, but I didn't see any when I was out and about.

Like clockwork - meteor shower = cloudy fucking night or pre-plans. Clouds tonight.

Moon will be a little bright anyway, I'm telling myself.

One of these nights I'll get out there with the camera.
That's the way it usually works here too, but it's crystal clear tonight

I can see some stars out, but there's a lot of hustle 'n bustle still going on. There's a larger pond behind my apartment building I'll walk down to around midnight....check it out.

I'm starting to see flashes of light, but I am about halfway through 750ML of Jameson... I haven't made it out to the patio, yet.

it was too cloudy here in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to see anything.
