Perseid meteor shower !
Stardate program -- and the Perseids had just slipped my mind. What joy to find that I was awake and the stars were shooting, just outside the bedroom window!
How I wish I could have gotten pictures of a shooting star but it's beyond my capabilities -- you'll just have to imagine -- the dark coolness of the night and the eerie silence as another jet of light etches a brief path across the vault of heaven.
Tonight our sky is overcast -- no chance of more meteorite viewing. Thank goodness for the dog who got me out of bed!
Tomorrow I'm heading to the middle of the state to take part in a mini-mystery tour. I doubt I'll be posting while I'm away but I should be back Saturday night with stories to tell.
