Hi all,
Have you seen any Perseid meteors tonight?
Helpful info from loving stargazers is here:  http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/05aug_perseids/
And http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseids

I looked.

There is a brilliantly dark, clear sky over Ranch Road tonight. No moon; just one glorious Venus. The Milky Way shimmers in full glory.  The fog lurks off to the west.

After a couple minutes’ gaze, a large creature bounded out of the forest. Yikes!  Perhaps it was only a rabbit, but I envisioned a mountain lion (hungry, of course). Or maybe the Gorgon Medusa.

Like Perseus with Hermes’ winged shoes, but missing Hades’ invisibility helmet, I dashed inside.
