THE HEAVENS ARE ON FIRE!!!

The Perseid's are coming! The Perseid's are coming! The meteor shower, that is. August 11th through the 13th, the Perseid meteor shower will once again visit the sky overhead. (For those of you I didn't bore with it last year.....) The Perseid meteor shower is the largest visible meteor shower of the year, so named because the meteors seem to rain down from the constellation Perseus. In recent years the experts have estimated up to eighty an hour were visible in the right conditions. Pretty impressive when some people have only seen one or two their entire lives.

As usual, we're having people over for a bonfire and some star watching the evening of August 11th. The peak is from 1am to 2am the morning of the 12th, so don't worry if you have to come late. We understand the weekday timing may not be ideal for many of you, but we hope as many of you can come as possible. And like previous years, if anyone wants to spend the night you are more than welcome to do so. I'll be on vacation that week and will be fixing a big breakfast if anyone makes it through the night.

If you need directions or have other questions, please comment with your email and I'll get back to you.

Ell and I hope to see you there.

You are so funny, Sam! We can't make it, but are you interested in having an 11-year-old? Just kidding.

As much fun as it sounds to come to your place to watch this... not sure I could get there in time :) I'm going to try to stay awake long enough to watch at least part of it though.
