I hate myself for responding to a zombie thread, but…
I went out for a couple hours after dark and saw a bunch. Maybe an average of one every three minutes or so. Turned in around 12:30 because I really wanted to get up for this morning’s “peak.” I went outside for 45 minutes just now, and saw one. That’s right, one. I’m not pleased.
However, it was cool to see pieces of the winter sky start appearing…the Pleadies, Taurus, and Orion were all coming up in the east. I’m never up to see them except in the dead of winter…so that was nice. I love the other half of the sky so much better than the boring summer sky. Altair can kiss my ass. Vega and Deneb still rock, though. Props to my homies.
Oh yeah, Mars was coming up in the east, too. Can’t wait to see that guy more once fall starts. I’ve been waiting to train my new scope on him.
I’m really tired and grumpy now. Off to bed, probably to have dreams about meteor showers that are better than the shit I just woke up for.
