If the skies here on Long Island are clear tonight and my kids cooperate, I am going to see if I can find a dark area to take them to watch the meteor shower.

tommy, do you have a video camera that might capture the event? That would be cool to post if you can!

Tommy said...

I didn't see one single meteor!

I dragged my kids to the the South Shore of Long Island and walked out onto the sand of one of the beaches around 10 pm and stayed there about a half hour. Saw lots of starts, but no meteor shower.

Later on during the night, after midnight, I took a peek outside my door and still nothing.

What a bummer!

Stardust said...

tommy, that IS a bummer! Good try though, and you got a chance to stargaze with the kids. :-D They will remember that.

Tommy said...

I will try again tonight, from my front yard that is. No driving to the beach again.

Hope you at least get to see a couple of them...I would be happy seeing one.
