[/quote] Don't feel so bad, NASA is having trouble with their live feeds, too. Most likely a thunderstorm, but here's a link in case they get it going again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmuhFdeBBMs [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/user/NASA4USA?v=TmuhFdeBBMs[/youtube] And I just found this Virtual Star Party video from last night's action.

When I first went out, I saw a fairly large one, with a very bright and long tail streaking behind...I must say it startled me, even though I was actively looking for it.... [/quote]
Perseid Meteor showers peaking now through tomorrow night. Thanks to our beloved internet we can observe them from our computers even if it's raining outside. Of course if you're blessed with clear, dark skies all you need is a lounge chair or blanket, some bug repellent and a pair of eyeballs. That's right, NO FANCY OPTICS REQUIRED.
