    Meteor Shower

    I am enjoying the night sky tonight.

    For those of you interested and are late to sleep, the Draconoid Meteor Shower is happening tonight ( Monday ) ; and at 8:30 PM, I am seeing about 30 meteors an hour.

    Grab a chair, your favorite flavor of cool-aid, and enjoy the yard tonight looking up.

    As of now, 9:00 PM, they are falling mostly from north to south.

    When I posted this it was a good show from 8:40 to about 10:00.

    Then it died down. Bright streaks , went to full and short bursts.

    I went to bed about 10:30.

    Too many lights around here. Plus I would have to go somewhere to watch if the light pollution were not an issue- my balcony has a large tree that blocks my view- which is a good thing for the most part.
