Went out this morning and saw the perseid shower.  Not at peak, but still quite good.  No clouds, no moon and our viewing location in on a remote road in the middle of a salt marsh was super dark.

Eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Remembered the binoculars for a change and got an excellent look at Andromeda.  You could see the center glob very well and some of the structure out to the sides.


  1. I've seen a few sparks this past week but last night was a little cloudy. I'll try again tonight.
