I have a little sleep deprivation right now from no sleep but wow was it worth it ! [/quote] God bless you, Apocalypse Girl, your testimony is much appreciated and, I hope, an inspiration to others. Thanks for your post, friend. :hf::hf::hf: [/quote] Thank you for posting this thread ...I encourage everyone to see it just once in an area that is very remote and away from the lights of the cities :hf: ... I know I was in awe last night ! [/quote] I've seen many meteors and showers over the years, usually by happenstance or from my local vantage-point (wherever that was). One time only (early '90's) did I travel to the Pocono Mtns. for the express reason of watching the Perseids with friends. We had a nice barbeque and set up cameras and were blessed with beautiful clear, dark, moonless skies. It's a memory I still cherish. I'm attempting with this thread to spread the appreciation of these natural wonders to others. I'm overwhelmed by the awesome interest, especially folks like yourself and Rock Star Mommy who exposed their children to this type of experience. Our young people are being sucked into a ' virtual vortex' of video games and a mentally unhealthy false reality. Kids need to go camping, stargazing, hiking, etc. with their peers and elders to sense and grab hold of their true place in the Cosmos. Say NO to TV, junk food, spectator sports and obesity. Life's too precious to ignore the reality in favor of a fake 'death culture' which is foisted upon the youth. :rant: [/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.
