    Anyone watching the Perseid Meteor Shower this weekend?? I try watch them every year and did manage to get a photo of one a couple of years ago. It's supposed to be cloudy and rainy here today, but I'm hoping that it clears by tonight. If I have time today I might try to set up the camera and tripod again. I try to catch the Geminid Meteor Shower every year as well, but it's in December and it's cold lol. I love stargazing :)

    We usually do. We camped last year and saw an amazing show!!! I just think it's magical.

    It was pretty hazy here last night and we were at a town festival, so I did not see any last night. We don't have a view from our house at all. I'm half tempted to go to my parents house and take the boys up for the night. They have a great view- especially from the hot tub!

    Yesterday, the smoke finally cleared so I thought we'd get to see the meteor shower last night but then clouds blew in. Today the smoke is back, so hoping it will clear by tonight and we can finally get to watch the show!

    well, bad news. hot tub is broken, mom has to work an overnight shift, and dad is out of town. Currently I'm trying to sweet talk my hubby into pulling the camper somewhere dark. I'm not getting very far, lol.

    Well, it's been raining all day and there's no sign of it letting up. If any of you watch them, enjoy them for me!

    I totally forgot to look last night! I love them, too!!

    Awww bummer on both counts!!

    Raining here again now :( It's been on and off all day. It's supposed to start clearing out some around 9 or 10 *fingers crossed**

    I'm hoping to watch tonight! We have a pretty good view from our house (out of the city a bit) & while it has been pretty smokey from fires- it's actually pretty clear today so hopefully we'll see some!!!

    I sat outside for a little while and tried to get some photos. It did clear up tonight and I got some good star shots, but don't think I actually captured any meteors this time. I would stay out there a little longer, but I have to get up early early in the morning.
