We watched them until very late last night. More tonight. If you have clear skies and minimal light pollution where you live they are beautiful.
meteor showers are spectacular right now
Glander, where are you located? I don't think we'll be able to see much here in NYC
Columbia River Gorge in Oregon.
We had a lot of cloud cover until the wee hours. I camped out in the back yard with my dog but did not see anything...
They we were scared inside by gunshots... laaame.
I hope to see some tonight..!
How many per hour were you able to see? Did the moon obsure a lot of the action?
The moon came up very low in the east and wasn't a factor until about midnight. By that time I was ready for bed. I also had overserved my refreshments.
Didn't count but it seemed like one every minute or two. Sometimes 2 at a time.
Really! I had heard that the show did not get going until after midnight.
In my region though, the moon was high at 11-12 already.
Maybe I'll try to go out and camp in a NF tonight...
I just love wathching them, one day one flew in so low that I heard it whoosh across the sky !
Thanks for letting us know, I'll be out there later, with my hip flask in case of cold weather (Tee Hee)
Yeah, living in a US border town (MX not Canadian...) is awesome.
Less gunshots in the area of town I live in now but apparently someone was gettin rowdy at 4am closeby this morning...
You are the only person besides myself that I have ever heard use the term "light pollution".
I am waiting for it to get dark so I can watch the meteors. Perhaps I will get a glimpse of Jehovah sitting up there at Pleiades .
We're all about eliminating the light pollution here in (southwest town where there are a lot of observatories + telescopes). We have special street lamps, house lights etc.
I am leaving the house at 3am tonight to get out to a trailhead to stargaze for an hour or two before I start my Sunday morning trail run.
