I was actually rather excited when I learned that the moon would not be a issue this year. But as said - it will probably be cloudy and raining. :cry:

Thanks! I'm looking forward to it, and hopefully we'll be able to see some of it.

I was in a field untill about 4:30 this morning watching the show. I probably saw about 80 - 100 meteors last night. Most were just little earth grazers, but some were long, bright and beautiful. For those of you that like this sort of thing there is a lunar eclipse later this month, I believe it is the 28th but I'll find a link for it.
