Don't forget folks, tonight is the main event with the Perseid meteor shower... conditions look great here.

(Just don't believe the media hype, you probably won't see a meteor every minute.)

Wishing you all clear dark skies and no mosquitoes!

____ No but my 2 and 6 Meter antennas can, during meter showers hams use the ionized gases left behind to make long distance contacts with radios that will hardly get out of your yard.

____ 2 Meters good for less than 35 mile radius, riding a good ion track maybe 1k miles.

It was a nice clear night, but not that spectacular a show for us. It started out good at 11:30 pm, I saw 4 meteors within 5 minutes or so, then a couple nice fireballs with trails, but then it kinda dried up around 12am.

We did have an owl hooting nearby, and a bat scared the guano out of me by flying up close, but there were just a few more fast streaks and that was it for the next half hour.

Can't beat staring up at the night sky though. [Cool]

As grateful as we are for rain in August around here, it rendered viewing impossible.
Thanks to littlefish for posting a link with the remarkable videos! [thumbsup]
