Watching The Perseids Meteor Shower

Tonight was the Perseid meteor shower. My DS, DH and I laid out on a blanket on our back patio to watch the Perseid meteor shower. My son was so excited that he got to see the shower. They were a little slow this year but it was still a good show. We had a pretty clear sky to watch them. There were a lot of stars out tonight and there was no moon so the viewing was pretty good. The big dipper was to the west of us and Cassiopeia was just above our house. The milky way was above our backyard. My hubby and I have been going out to watch the Perseid's every August and now we are watching them with our son.

  1. I went out this about 4:30 this morning but I didn't see anything. I waited about 15 min. but I'm too impatient to wait much longer (not to mention that I'm afraid of the dark and I was out there all alone!). Glad you got to see it.

  2. I am soooo jealous. My son came in just so we could watch them and it was overcast all weekend.
