I stayed up last night and looked in the sky to see the meteor shower that is hapopening all this week. Wow it was beautiful!!! Never saw so many " Shooting Stars" at once. It was great. I was just curios if anyone else saw it and where exactly u were? If u haven't I suggest it!! don't know how many u will see bing that last night was the peak proformance but its worth a shot!! If you are interested go outside when its nice and dark, let your eyes ajudst to the night sky ( about 15 mins) and lie on the ground looking up with your feet pointing into the NE sky. It was truely a beautiful site!!!!

I tried, but it is very bright here at night, and the cloud cover was patchy so needless to say I seen crap.

Mainly in the US. Might be seen other places, but closer to the states the better.

I tried to watch it but it was so bright that I could barely see any stars at all, which is sad seeing as how I live on 50 acres with 900,000 acres of farmland around me and it was still too bright.

I watched for more than an hour before I gave up and went to bed. Oh well.

We were able to see quite a few. It was really cool. My daughter and I went outside about 1:30 and stayed out for at least an hour; layed on a blanket and just watched in awe.

Hello, DragonFly:

No, I wanted to see it, though. I woke up about 3:30 with a horrible sinus headache. Took some Motrin and went back to bed. I may try again in the morning. They are saying it's supposed to still be good, and you'll still see them until Aug. 22nd.

Something for all you meteorheads

It took me at least 150 attempts, to be pointed in the right direction, at the right time. But here is a nice pic, from last night..I'll be attempting more shots tonight.
But this is for all you folks who are Socked-in by clouds..
Let me know what you think! Yes, there really was a bit of a color change as this one whizzed by..





Space out

I was lucky, and my wife and I went out to the county lake and watched it. Away from all the lights and all, it was beautiful. There were some pretty good sized ones that impressed me, but the numerous small ones happening all at once were sweet too. This is the first shower I have ever got to see, so I was like a little kid watching my first baseball game in person. I cannot wait until the next shower now!

Edit: I am located in Pratt, Kansas

What a beautiful sight... Here I can barely see stars from my backyard because of city lights, pollution, etc. and it sucks. I always go out when there are supposed meteor showers, but never see anything.

South San Francisco was a no go due to the foggy Bay Area status.

If it would be real meteor storm there would be hundreds of those in pic depending on exposure time.

Would have been nice to watch these but I was in northern Finland and Norway and in there nights are pretty much as dark as cloudy day!
