And Still More Perseids

I woke up at a quarter past three and came back outside where I stayed until about a quarter after four, lying under a blanket on the diving board at the north end of the yard where the light is least. I spotted another 25 Perseids and three more meteors from other sources, including two that seemed to come from the direction of Aquarius, home to a minor shower or two this month. What a beautiful night of viewing, especially considering I was able to do it from my own backyard.

Sounds like fun. Is it too late to see them? Have the kids gone out to see them?
