The Perseids [Aug. 13th, 2013|09:14 am]
Tony Grist
Call that a shower? I stood on the back lawn for quarter of an hour and saw several planes but only one meteor. It lasted for less than a second.

It was a clear night. Well, clearish. There were clouds around the horizon but the view to the top of the sky was unobstructed. I've forgotten most of my star-craft but this would be a good time and place to relearn it.

A few years ago, a friend and I camped out in her backyard to watch the Perseids. They had been going on and on about how there'd be 100 per hour. We saw about 10 in five hours. And they were not that impressive. I haven't been out to watch them since. I got about a million mosquito bites that night too. I'm lucky I didn't get malaria.

What I want to know is why they can't turn up at a reasonable time of day- like early afternoon. I don't like missing out on my sleep.

To be visible at that time of day, they'd be rather frightening, I suspect. LOL. Huge balls of flame hurtling across the sky. I can already hear my mother intoning, "It's a sign of the End Times."

Ack.
