Not sure if anyone is interested in astronomy..

But there is supposed to be a spectacular meteor shower tonight... Just wondering if I was alone in watching the sky tonight. :)

When my kids were little, we'd take a blanket out to the backyard about 11:00 at night and lay out and watch the showers. They loved it.

I'm kinda bummed. I'm in Florida now and not in Tennessee so the light pollution is horrid as are the mosquitos. I'm going to miss the shower. Hubby and I love sitting on the back porch in the mountains (no light pollution) and watching the stars shoot by. Some of them are spectacular and you would think they are fake.

One of my favorite memories growing up was going out with my brother's dad and laying on the hood of his car and watching a shower...
