It's possible this will be the only post without pictures! I stood outside at 3:15 a.m. to see the Perseid meteor shower: I was not disappointed!
I was able to spot 7 meteors. They are waaaaay too quick to take a photo! And they go fast and then burn out. Very cool. I was also astonished how many stars and planets I was able to spot. If you haven't been able to get outside either very late or very early, look online for Perseid Meteor shower...there are several live blogs where you'll be able to participate.
God is amazing in His creations!!
