See a meteor shower
A meteor shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate from one point in the night sky. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth's atmosphere at extremely high speeds on parallel trajectories. Most meteors are smaller than a grain of sand, so almost all of them disintegrate and never hit the Earth's surface.

Attempted to watch Perseids shower tonight (August 12/18) as I have in the past. 2 raccoons fighting in the backyard put an end to that. Will try to book camping next August to be away from the city lights for it.

Signing this one off for now, since we - my dog and I - made an attempt at watching the Orionids tonight. Caught one right at the beginning, three in quick succession about 10 minutes in, and then a period of silence for the next half hour. May try again at about 4am.

On the one hand, this would have been a good one for having a photo of.
On the other hand, taking photos at night, of the night sky, of meteors, is hard.
Completed somewhere on Mt Seymour.

Active from July 13th to August 26th 2015
The Perseids are the most popular meteor shower as they peak on warm August nights as seen from the northern hemisphere. The Perseids are active from July 13 to August 26. They reach a strong maximum on August 12 or 13, depending on the year. Normal rates seen from rural locations range from 50-75 shower members per hour at maximum.The Persesids are particles released from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle during its numerous returns to the inner solar system. They are called Perseids since the radiant (the area of the sky where the meteors seem to originate) is located near the prominent constellation of Perseus the hero when at maximum activity.
