Just some pictures taken in our back yard. We’ve spent a lot of time on it during this year, so its nice to sit back and take in some of the sights every now and then.

Perseids Meteor shower 2007

We stayed up to head just outside the city limits to take in the meteor shower this year. The weather channel lady had said it would be a great night for it, so we had headed a ways north to take it in.

Infortunately, some cloud cover moved in just as we picked out our spot. We hung around for about an hour, but there was nothing doing, so we packed it in and headed home.

Just as I was filling up with gasoline, the wife had seen some activity in the sky. It had cleared up just a little, and she had seen a bright meteor in the sky.

So we headed out east this time to again get away from the city lights. It took almost 20 minutes of neck strain before we saw our first one. It was a very bright streak through what seemed one end of the horizon to the other. After that, we saw bright ones every 5 to 10 minutes. We may have seen some very faint ones, but it is hard to tell when you are seeing a faint streak or your eyes are playing tricks.

All in all, it was a good skywatch night, we are looking forward to doing it again soon.

Watched this on JibJab today, laughed pretty hard so I thought I would share.

Found this on Kevin Rose’s blog, thought I would pass along the link.

I found it interesting to see how people interpret location data. With the advent of GPS for example, we don’t see many other services other than mapping.

I did hear on the radio the other day, however, that you can now buy this guided city tour that comes preloaded with information about the area you are in, and as you tour around it will tell you the interesting points and stops right around where you are located.
