Perseid Meteor Shower update
I couldn't have asked for a better night to watch the meteor showers. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and we had such a great view of the stars and the milky way that I didn't want to leave. I wait for this night every year, and I always keep it open so that I can camp with my lawn chair under the stars.
This year, the boyfriend and I decided to watch the meteors by the windmills in Lowbanks. There aren't any city lights in the area so it made for great conditions to watch the night sky.
We both had our cameras set up, but were unable to capture any meteors in the sky. Check out this group on Flickr dedicated to this year's shower: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Perseid+Meteor+Shower+2010.
