Went out the evening of August 10th to watch the Perseid meteor shower. There was quite a bit of waiting for meteors, so it was a good time to test our Astronomy knowledge. It was an incredibly clear night - not a cloud in the sky. The Seven Sisters was the first thing that I saw as I went outside. Something that I had never seen was the plane of the Milky Way, which is surprisingly neat and obvious.I didn't have a camera that couldn't take exposure shots, so that was a bit of a drag. Oh well, so it goes.
