One of the great things about camping is that we can be away from all the city lights to experience nature at it's best!

This LINK will also give you great tips to viewing or photographing this event!
Hope some of you are able to see!
You can go here to know where in the sky to look. Below is the qoute from this link.

"With no bright moon to interfere, and considering that there will be a total eclipse of the Moon on the 28ths, this likely will be the second best event of the month. Find a comfy and safe spot away from lights and with a good view of the sky. Then just look to the eastern sky between midnight and dawn. Typically this is one of the best showers of the year, and conditions are good this year. The peak rates are usually given as 50 to 90 meteors per hour, but local seeing conditions can vary. Be content if you see one meteor every couple of minutes, but don't be surprised if you see a lot more!"

I might have to drive outta town to see this. If I look east from my house, all I get to see the nice glow of the parking lot lights from the Meijer & Home Depot stores around the corner.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We are sitting in Colorado and hope to get clear sky tonight. About 12 miles out of town (Gunnison) and usually great skies. Now if I can just stay awake...

After returning from the Steeler game last night my wife and I spent ~2 hours observing.

We saw about 15 meteors. Most were Perseid, radiating from the constellation. The brightest was possibly 0 magnitude.

Tonight will be the peak so get out and look low in the northeast sky.
