Did anyone catch the Perseids last night. It was supposed to have peaked at around 4am. I set the alarm for 3:30 and then shut it off when it did go off.


I am going to try tonight for sure as there should still be some good showers left.

My husband said the moon was too bright to see anything.

I tried, but a combination of Moon and clouds got in the way.

Me too, but it was a beautiful warm night indeed. Reminded me of Hawaii.

Next year is supposed to be better from what I have read, just a sliver of New Moon.

I stood looking for about ten minutes at 5:00am - still dark here then - and saw nary a one. Moon wasn't much of a factor but could have shielded really dim ones. I've seen plenty of previous "showers" and feel there should be another name for them - "sprinkles" maybe?

There was too much cloud cover here in the Rio Rancho area.
