Meteoric Friday

Standard

So did you get to see the Perseids yet?  Actually the peak days HERE were yesterday and today but Mom and I have seen meteors in the early morning sky (4AM) for the past four days.  Not as many today as yesterday but still we’ve seen them!

When Mom and I go out for our early morning walk at 4AM, I’m on my harness and leash and Mom has a flashlight.   If she’s sky-watching, I just kind of pull her along – like a tractor pulling a dead tree (hahahaha…sorry Mom) but she lets ME guide her while she’s staring at the stars.   She has favorite constellations she likes to look for but the Perseids have been fun.   Whenever there’s a Perseid event we’re all over it.

Stevie the feral visitor was out there waiting to join us to see the meteors.

Now this is NOT my Mom’s photo but it’s EXACTLY what we saw yesterday morning………………most of the meteors we’d seen were fairly small in size with “short tails” – this one was a goodie!

METEOR

There were some clouds in yesterday’s morning sky so peeking in between them was interesting while meteor-watching!

This is my Mom’s FAVORITE constellation.  Why?  She just loves the shape and the number of stars – it’s easy to find…..

CASSEOPIA

Cassiopeia

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE CONSTELLATION??????

Is there one named after Bacon I wonder???????
