Folks here around the PNW, the Perseus meteor show will be good early tomorrow morning. Should be easy to see in the East from about 0200 till 0430. I have always liked the idea of burning rocks from space hurtling into our atmosphere. Check it out.
Pre-dawn, isn't it wonderful? Nice, cold to the bones kind of fun.Too much light pollution here in town, we'd have to drive a good distance from here to get a good view. I used to love watching stars and meteor showers as a firefighter. I don't see the night sky as much as I used to.
I don't miss freezing and boring night shifts on dead out fires though. The last couple of hours until morning were really unpleasant to stay awake for.
No kiddin'. I remember New Year's Eve this past year. I was on a cutter off the Equator on a new moon. Dark as hell, darkened ship, every single star in sight and luminescent algae in the water to boot. Cool as can be.Being on an aircraft carrier at night in the middle of the ocean when the ship was dark... it seemed like you could almost see every single star and planet. Those were the best night skys I had ever seen.
