    Amazing Night for Meteors!


    Sometimes you take a leap of faith and wake your 5yr old and 7yr old sons up from their deep slumber at 2am in the morning to bring them deep into the dark woods to show them a beautiful display of the Universe. Last night I did exactly that and it paid off. We woke up at 2am and drove out to a dark area and setup our blankets on the hood of the car and watched the sky over head put on the most amazing firework show of Perseid Meteors. We saw so many we stopped counting and just gasped in joy and amazement. I had my camera running for 2 hours and was able to catch a total of 8 all together. It was by far one of the most memorable experiences I have had with my two oldest sons.
