    Enjoy the Perseids folks, may mean a late night but tonight isn't a school night in North America, at least.

    I guess someone moved North America away from our school district, then... wink

    Thank you for posting this excellent link. It's awesome when a natural wonder or astronomy event or scientific phenomena can be witnessed and experienced by people in many widespread areas around the globe.

    I saw one streak across the sky last night around 11pm. I was amazed at how bright it was.

    I'm debating going to bed early to wake up early to view around 4am.

    Absolutely, do it!

    If the weather is nice (clear skies), it is well worth it. Depending where you live, birds may start chirping at the first signs of dawn well before sunrise, about 4 to 5 am. The crickets and tree frogs may also join the chorus. You'll not be alone. smile

    Waiting for the clouds to clear over here right now. Yesterday we had a really sulky sky too but they actually do appear to be clearing tonight. It's like waiting for the curtains to open on a show you really want to see😃

    DS and I took out our sleeping bags and watched for about 1 1/2 hours last night. We saw several very nice long streaks and tons of smaller ones. I got up at 4 and a fog had set in and saw nothing for the 30 minutes I was out. There was no use in getting ds up for that. We will be watching again tonight for sure. We were talking about setting up the GoPro to see if we could catch some to play back.

    I woke DS7 up to see some of them this morning after I determined the viewing was good. Unfortunately, he missed the best part, because the clouds blew in and the sun started coming up after we got back outside. He was still thrilled, though, I think mostly at the notion of getting up early to watch the sky. He thinks he saw one or two small ones.
