Attempted to watch Perseids shower tonight (August 12/18) as I have in the past. 2 raccoons fighting in the backyard put an end to that. Will try to book camping next August to be away from the city lights for it.
I watched one when I was little and I want to see one again!
Saw 33 meteors in the Perseid meteor shower in the space of just over an hour - it was awesome!
almost done, i cannot see because of weather
Saw a meteor shower over our house, watching out of the skylight, with one huge golden shooting star flying right across the sky
Signing this one off for now, since we - my dog and I - made an attempt at watching the Orionids tonight. Caught one right at the beginning, three in quick succession about 10 minutes in, and then a period of silence for the next half hour. May try again at about 4am.
Perseid Meteor Shower, San Juan Island, WA, August 2016
With Sculpteo colleagues in Gorges d'Apremont on 12/08/2016
On the one hand, this would have been a good one for having a photo of.
On the other hand, taking photos at night, of the night sky, of meteors, is hard.
Completed somewhere on Mt Seymour.
Planning to watch the Eta Aquarids meteor shower on May 6th of 2016... should be a new moon for easy viewing!
Also August 13, 2015. Perseids meteor shower with dane and blake.
Drie vallende sterren = Drie wensen!
Active from July 13th to August 26th 2015
The Perseids are the most popular meteor shower as they peak on warm August nights as seen from the northern hemisphere. The Perseids are active from July 13 to August 26. They reach a strong maximum on August 12 or 13, depending on the year. Normal rates seen from rural locations range from 50-75 shower members per hour at maximum.The Persesids are particles released from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle during its numerous returns to the inner solar system. They are called Perseids since the radiant (the area of the sky where the meteors seem to originate) is located near the prominent constellation of Perseus the hero when at maximum activity.
Leoniden-Schauer: 10. bis 21. November, Maximum: 17. November
Geminiden-Schauer: 7. bis 17. Dezember Maximum: 14. Dezember
Yes! May 23rd. Spent the night at ND & Joe's. Got up at 2 AM and stayed outside in the chilled morning air until 4 AM. Saw.....maybe 5? The meteor shower part of it was a bust, but we had loads of fun and smores. Will definitely be doing it again!
I did this with B on May 23. We went out to the Chabot Space Center in Oakland at midnight for the viewing party. Just saw a few meteors.
Watch North American Meteor Shower in late august
Summer of Sasamat 2012. Watching a meteor shower with my friends on a quiet lake dock was pretty amazing.
The next one is on my birthday!
It was too cloudy
Done with the posse in the Spanish Fork Canyon...August 11-12, 2012. Gorgeous and super cool.
We drove near SAC Lake on base and watched the meteors. We saw a few great meteors fly by.
My husband is my high school sweet heart, and in high school we lay on his parents driveway and watched a meteor shower.
One of my fav memories
Next step: find out when next meteor shower is.
The light of the moon pretty much drowned them all out earlier this month
Upcoming: May 5, 6 and July 28 and 29
Cloudy on both nights. April 21, 22 should be the next time meteors are coming out. No moon and no school. Backup plan will be on May 5 - 6
