I've witnessed a dew meteor showers in the past. Wondrous and amazing!
I sure wish they could 'schedule' them a little earlier at night!
I seem to be cursed with cloudy weather every time one occurs. Still, the few I have seen have been gorgeous.
Yes! There's the cloud thing too! I remember dragging my kids out in the middle of the night to see Halley's comet. Got all set up out in the boonies where it was dark enough - and clouds rolled in. (sigh)
We were camping down in Cornwall for the 1999 Solar eclipse. The clouds parted just as it started. It was so beautiful
If you can (and if you get good weather too), it's well worth it Will :)
Said Henny Penny, the some what paranoid chicken, or was that Chicken Lickin? I have confuseled myself. Yes, I just made that word up, don't bother googling it.
Actually I did, seems someone else invented it before me. You can even buy a t-shirt, I don't get any royalties though because I was late in on the game. So I shouldn't bother if I were you.
