And We Just Keep Rolling Along

Although hopefully we’ll have some good news to report after the doctor visit on Thursday we’re still pretty much doing nothing. We were going to go out both last night and the night before before dawn and drive about 20 miles to get out of the city lights to watch the annual Perseids meteor shower…but it was overcast both nights so we missed them. The shower gradually tapers off over time though…and tonight is supposed to be clear so we’re going to set an alarm for 0200 again and see if the skies are clear before heading out if they are.

Just in case we miss them tonight; here’s a composite shot I grabbed from the Astronomy Picture of the Day web site that was taken early Monday morning…hopefully we’ll have our own pictures tomorrow.

Perseids vangaal 1900

They’re past peak tonight but there should still be some to view assuming the weather cooperates. The shower is named because they appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus but the dust particles are actually pieces of the comet Swift-Tuttle which remain behind in it’s orbit. 

Connie went out and got her nails done today and brought home some yellowfin tuna…we’ll sear that and have the mostly raw tuna along with some wasabi and rice for dinner.
