I love naps, almost anytime. It doesn't look good for PNW viewing for tonight, either. I'll look but rely on you to please enjoy them for me. Jespah -- a light blue streak?? Neato

I saw various shades myself...a couple of great orange/red coloring and a fwe shades of blue as well..very nice, glad I wasnt alone in my watching, in fact I was a bit comfotred to hear a few neighbors out there as well. Although, now that I think about it...me in my sweats, on a beach chair with a big rain coat over me in the middle of the yard, in the middle of the night
well, at least no one called the cops Smile

Gosh k..yeah, I did see quite a few 7-10 large streaming colorful full sky ones and probably another 5-8 smaller ones and was completely astonished, thinking I wouldnt see any at all. I was thinking about that further today and you know, it could be because Im really surrounded pretty much by water....this could lessen the city light effect.It was also incredibly clear. I stayed out there for about an hour. Froze but, was worth it. Sorry ya missed it gal but, I almost went to bed myself, so I know what ya mean.

The Cape might be a good place to take in the view.

There should be some good photos coming today and the next few days, at least I hope so for those who didnt get to it.

No, some past point I misplaced my cable release...
I know..guess
But, that also means takin out the old cameras in the closet...and Id be guessing on all kinds of things workin, and Im pretty sure it has B&W film in it

excuses

Besides, Ive done a lot of those before <two years of astronomy alongside photography kinda makes that happen somehow>

Let me guess, the Geminids come from the area of the Gemini constellation???

I was up at 4ish, but it didn't look clear, and since I was in Seattle with lights... AND the moon was full, I didn't even try. However, this morning the moon, the sunrise, the fog rising off Puget Sound and Mt. Baker bathed in light were breath-taking. That was worth an early rising and trekking around.
