Yeah, TAtt. Our weatherman mentioned this in his 10 o'clock report. We're not anywhere near the east coast, but our skies are generally very, very clear, so we may see some fun stuff anyhow. Nothin' like Mother Nature's fireworks!

I am in the process of watching/capturing them on cam, just needed a refill.

The skies were cloudy a little bit ago, but now they are clear. The city lights are NOT helping though, grrr...the things we take for granted...see a couple of them zingers, so back out I go.

If I some how manage to get a cool shot, I'll be sure to post it/them in this thread.

I got up at 4:30 this morning to watch...knowing the best viewing was between midnight and dawn. It was so overcast this morning that I couldn't see a thing. I believe I get 4 more opportunities to catch the show this week; so I'll try each morning. I know last night was supposed to be the best... Oh well. Better luck tomorrow morning.

How did you do?

Clouds moved in late, like 3am here. Darn the city lights! Saw quite a few good shooting stars though.

For the first time it was not overcast here and we could sit out on the deck and look. We saw several, really bright and had long tails. I love this stuff. Can't wait until the 27th!
